My vision is getting even worse and I'm only just barely able to use MT4 with considerable difficulty now. I have the windows systems fonts etc enlarged, but it doesn't affect the MT4 client fonts. Is there anyway that I can (easily) make the fonts in MT4 larger as there is in the Editor?
Things I've done to help me 'see' is to change colors so that there is high contrast between FG,BG. Like on the Yaxis prices say yellow on a black BG
Also you could add a script to replace the: topLeft sym,per,ohlc o/p (remember to deselect "Show OHLC" on Common tab of charts Properties window (F8))
The script would use OBJ_LABEL type with what ever font,size,color you wanted...
Is total pain but that's my only idea.
btw, even 'seeing' does not improve my win %
Ok, there is a question here, what things do you want to be large size???
There are a lot of tools that help traders to ease their ways in trading at MT4 platform.
Thanks for your responses. As posted, I already have my windows settings such that things are enlarged. What it doesn't do is enlarge ALL of the text in MT4, or numerous other apps either, which is what I need.
7Bit: LoL If only it were that easy eh? (< 8) I have a very expensive very HQ 21" CRT professional graphics monitor that is phenomenal. Alas unknown to me my new digs doesn't have grounded outlets. How did I find this out? Last winter when the relative humidity of the air was very low and thus induces a lot of static, my cat rubbed up against it as it was going by it as cats are want to do. A few million volts of static zapped the vertical sync in it )< 8( My 15" backup monitor was a piece of junk when it was new 15 years ago and unlike wine and other fine liquors hasn't improved any with aging.
I have OnScreen software magnifiers, but they are too much of a pain to be effective for full time use. I generally only use them to help me decipher captchas. I like to have as big a 'DeskTop' as possible, but then who doesn't? But I have to and do strike a balance.
SF: I was going to send you a message about your 'All hallows Eve' costume for the upcoming event. Have any great inspirations and implementations in mind or are you already scary enough looking all of the time that you don't need one? LoL (< 8)
This problem is worse for me now.
I've reduced the size of my desktop and and as a result everything is bigger now. I've also increase the font size. This is working for everything in windows: EXCEPT in MT4.
I know that the font size in the MetaEditor is adjustable, but I have been unable to find a counter part for MT4.
Using a magnifying glass ALL the time I am in MT4 is unrealistic.
Is their a way to INCREASE the FONT Size in MT4?
Take a look at this code: I use this sort of code to track important number in MT4. You can make the font as big as you want.
ObjectCreate("Priceinfo", OBJ_LABEL, 0, 100, 100);
ObjectSetText("Priceinfo", "Price: "+Bid);
I've reduced the size of my desktop and and as a result everything is bigger now.
