Hi,

Just wondering if there is a way to make MT4 automatically save chart objects. Everytime I close charts I have to re-draw them which can be time consuming. Is there a way to keep objects on charts when closing them for later use?

Thanks.

Chart objects are saved automatically.

I don't know if it is still the case, but shutting down the computer without closing MT4 first would result in loss of recent changes.

Most likely that you have a poorly coded indicator or EA attached to the chart that deletes all objects on de-initialization.

They stay if I don't close the chart.

My issue is that I want to be able to keep objects on the chart if I close the chart of and re open it such as support and resistance levels. I don't want to re-draw them each time I re-open the chart.

I don't want to have many chart tabs open down the bottom of the MT4 program.

Ah, I see.

Save the chart template before you close it, then re-apply the template when you open it again
