could someone please explain the mechanics of squaring a chart with SC - I'm unable to figure it out from their documentation. What I want is to set up squaring that represents 'n' pts per bar. (whatever that bar in time or range might be on a chart?

tia, I appreciate the help.

Sean, not sure about SC but in NT you'd change the bar type to Renko (as opposed to candles, OHLC, etc.) bars. See if you have such a setting for your bar types in SC. Perhaps someone else will chime in with exactly how that is done in SC.

You should be able to right click on the scale and check 'Set X&Y constant relationship'. You can go into scale settings then and adjust the numbers.
