TOS studies question

Ok I have looked and I am unfamiliar with this site and am new so apologies upfront if this has been answered: I use TOS and I want to create drawings and studies on the 5 min chart of the pound for instance that do not show up on other time frames of the Pound. Anyone know the recipe?

I cannot help with the specific detail, but fwiw any chart that I mark up on tos is the only one with those markings. I typically have a three chart workspace up and if I mark up one the other two are unaffected. Probably a simple detail am not familiar with, probably a short call or chat with tos would get it.

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

In terms of not having drawings carry over from one time frame chart to the next, this is very easy to do IF you are working with multiple charts. Meaning, if you have two or more charts in your workspace, say one is the 5 minute and then you have a 30, 120, and Daily, you would just click the cog (Chart Settings) at the top of the charts, go to the first (General) tab, and make sure that 'Synchronize: Drawings' is NOT checked, then click 'Apply' and 'OK'. Then when you place a drawing on one chart, it will not carry over to others in the platform.

In terms of having that occur as you just switch time frames on the same chart, I am not aware of that possibility within the platform, and can not think of any way to program that into a script. I don't think TOS has anything available in ThinkScript that would even allow for that modification.
