I am more comfortable working with dark color bars on a white background.
If I right-click on a chart and click "Properties", I have the option of changing to a different color scheme (in my case I prefer "Black on White").
However, I find myself having to do this for every new chart window that I open.
Is there any way of changing the default color scheme for charts to always be "Black on White", or whichever other color scheme I prefer?
Sure, you get the chart how you want it then save that as a template. Right mouse click, Template, save as. You can put that template on any chart by applying the template. There is a default template as well, called default. Just save to that name and it will do what you want. From the help files of the terminal ....
A template is a set of chart window parameters that
can be applied to other charts. The following can be stored in a template:
chart type and color;
OHLC line shown or hidden;
the attached expert advisor and its parameters;
the imposed custom and technical indicators with their settings;
separators of days.
When a template is imposed into a chart, the stored settings, as they are,
will be attached to the security and period. For example, one can create a
template that includes indicators of MACD, RSI, and Moving Average, and then use
it for other charts. In this case, charts windows will have the same view for
different symbols and periods.
Templates are stored in the /TEMPLATES directory as TPL files. A template
created once can be used unlimited amount of times. A basic template
(DEFAULT.TPL) is created during installation of the terminal. It will be applied
automatically for creation a new chart window. In future, it can be changed by
using of the active chart window properties.
To create a new template, one has to execute the "Charts — Template — Save Template..." menu
command, the chart context menu command of the same name, or by pressing of the
button of the "Charts" toolbar. As a
result, a new template will be created on basis of the data of active chart
window. The same actions must be performed to modify a template, but an existing
template should be selected instead of entering of a new filename. To impose a
template into the chart window, one has to select the desired file in the
templates managing menu or in any available folder in the "Open" window that can
be called by the "Charts — Template — Load
Template..." menu command. The "Charts —
Template — Remove Template" menu command and the chart context menu command
of the same name allow to delete templates.
why and in which case color of symbols change from red to blue and vice versa?
