NT8 line drawing

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

For short term levels Im drawing green lines on my chart but it takes time getting precisely at 90 degree angles. I dont want to use the extended chart because there are a lot of short term levels to look at and it would make my chart look very messy. Any tools I can use to simplify the task? (I deliberately left that last line wonky as thats what happens a lot until you correct them).

One of the things I miss the most in NT8 as well.
Only thing you have I think is the complete horizontal line (F6), but that'll draw a line across your whole canvas.

Draw the line, double click on it, expand the "Data" section and set the StartY and EndY to the same values.

Draw the line, double click on it, expand the "Data" section and set the StartY and EndY to the same values.

I just align my line with cursor cross hair and it works fine, np.

Use the rectangle drawing tool instead of the line. Use it the same way you would a line and it will come out straight every time.

Good solutions...here is another one.

Draw a Fib Retracement, edit its properties to:

- Do no show text
- Make Anchor line transparent
- Disable all levels except for either the 0% or 100%
- Save as Default

You now have a single horizontal custom length line each and every time.

The above is a great idea. You can make it even better IMHO if you open this drawing toolís code and do a save as, any name you want.

You can now set up a unique Hot Key just for this Fib Retracement tool where you save a default template as stated above by @NinjaTrader.

This way should you ever want to use the Fib tool in a normal way you can.
