New date 646 - appears to have a bug with " Default.tpl " file - or Default Template.

Prior update - one could - setup a template w/indicators etc - customized chart per personal needs. Say 5 Moving Averages 5/12/53/107/200 - Save the template as 5n12. open new chart - normal default is simple bar chart no indicator simple. Right click on chart - select template - select 5n12 - voila - no problem - now with this customized Template in place on chart - save this template and overwrite " default " save and okay

Now a new chart should always take on default.tpl as normally does - since we have the default now set with 5 MA's - each MA value previously set - all 5 MA values get reset to " Period 14 " as a value. So all MA lines are now compressed on top of each other in the new opened chart. Right click select Indicator List - all 5 and any other indicators are listed. Check each with Edit and all values are changed to 14. in the Period Cell.

If you review default.tpl with notepad - it reveals correctly the information set by previous saved from 5n12 template - but when as mention open a new chart all values get changed. Something has drastically changed. for the wrong. - Something is actually changed from custom template and its use when opening a new chart is clicked. Little manual work - yes one can always fix it. My script now to open my 25 charts for drilling fails to run where Last Friday it still worked as described.

example: default.tpl -- after saved 5n12.tpl and re-saved as Default.tpl - found in the _MetaTrader4\templates directory
