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.

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.

@TickedOff
some one uploaded a drawing indicator called ExtendableLine, which has a bunch of functions. one of which is, you can make the line Horizontal - and that is what I think you are looking for
It has a wide variety of options that you can use - check it out.
Cant find where i downloaded, if i can find it i will link the page later.

The above is a great idea. You can make it even better IMHO if you open this drawing tool’s 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.
