Drag and drop limit orders in TS

I have been using the OCO/OSO functionality in TS for a while, but must admit that I still find it a bit cumbersome to use. I wish there was a possibility for “drag and drop” of limit order lines (and perhaps there is….) in TS. Does anyone know if this functionality is available either within TS or from at third party? I know about the one from Customized Trading, but I want to use a more recent update of TS than required by their solution.

Not sure if this is the answer you are looking for but when I've done oco/oso I just click and hold on the line and drag it wherever I want. you might have to click on it once to "highlight" it but then click and hold and then drag.

I do it all the time - drag and drop with OSO/OCO or without. If you are waiting to be filled on a limit order that you have already been placed, you can drag and drop it under/over the market to get filled at the best bid/ask. In this scenario, your OSO/OCO orders will be placed relative to your fill. If you are in a position already, you can freely drag and drop your exit limit orders wherever you want. It can be done both on the matrix (DoM) and chart trading. I think you just need to get used to this. I am still on TS 9.1 and I hear/have read that they have further enhanced chart trading in 9.5.

You can click and drag in TS with either Chart Trading or the Matrix. I use both.
