Hello again, 

Wouldn't be useful (and logical) to keep gann line's settings intact when moving it around? 

When price scale modifies, trend lines and gann lines modify themselves. They modify their settings because ..... I really don't know why....why?

What's the whole idea of it?

How can I keep these lines' settings untouched when price scale modifies itself?

Very, very frustrating.

If there's no option or way to keep settings untouched, then this clearly is a downgrade with MT5 from MT4. 

I really don't see who would recreate and recreate and recreate (or modify and modify and modify) trend lines and gann lines every time price scale changes...

I deleted my answer to you because I was looking at MT4 instead of MT5 when I was answering to you (I wasn't realize it:)

I did an example:

1. I made a gann fan and a Gann line.

2. I set Gann line exactly parallel with 1x1 of Gann fan.

3. I moved both to the left until window's scale changed.

4. Gann line changed it's angle as seen.

What is the difference between Gann Line, and a regular trend line? Thank you.
