Are you about how to update MT4 to the build 1210?
As I remember - MQ told the following procedure about how to do it -

----------------

1. Connect MT4 to MetaQuotes-Demo server (open demo account with MetaQuotes-Demo:


2. Look at the status bar:

Status Bar
For additional information to be visualized, the status bar is used in the terminal. The status bar contains indicator of the server connection, amount of incoming and outgoing traffic, names of active template and profile, as well as command prompts and price data.

Connection status colors.

This is the server connection marker. Upper part of the marker is for the direct connection to the server. The lower part shows that you are connected through a Data Center.

If it is fully red, it means there is no connection with the selected server.
If it is green/red, this means the direct connection to the server.
If it is green/blue, this means that you use a Data Center.

If this marker is spotty in color, this means that the connection is not very good (this may cause that one quote reaches you, but another one does not).

and we can see how the update is downloaded ( we can see it by incoming traffic on the status bar).

3. If update is not started so - re-start Metatrader 4.
In my case - I restarted MT4 for 2 or 3 times, and MT4 update was started after that.

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...

I've noticed that some MQL4 functions work much much slower on the latest build (1210). I mean all ChartGet...() functions and all ObjectGet...() functions. They work fast only when used on the chart where EA/script is attached. However, as soon as you try to get any information from any other chart, they work hundreds of times slower. This problem appeared on build 1210.

Here is a sample script. It iterates through all open charts and tries to get some information about each chart. I have 6 open charts in my Metatrader. This script used to work immediately on previous builds. On build 1210 it takes more than 3 seconds to execute!

Can anyone confirm my findings? Is there any fix?

I can confirm that getting information from other charts is much slower. The pass for the current chart takes less than 10 microseconds whereas a pass for the other charts takes more than 70 000 (sometimes more than 300 000) microseconds. But I can't confirm that the issue is related only to 1210 build (I haven't tried it on older builds)

Everything worked much faster on previous builds. It all started with 1210.

I have a software that is used by a few thousands of people and it has just stopped working because of this update. Everything started to work so slowly that it is almost useless. I hope that someone will resolve this problem.

I believe you. I only said I couldn't confirm it (it is related to 1210 build). Maybe it would be best to post it on the Russian forum because (hope) MT developers read it (unlike English forum).

UPDATE: I found out @Sergey Golubev had posted it on Russian forum https://www.mql5.com/ru/forum/321460#comment_13138465. Thank you Sergey.

yes, the update was done automatically and confirms the last version you released.  The platform with the new update, everything is slower than before, I have many charts open with so many indicators purchased, the platform freezes, already in closed markets, I think it will be impossible to trade in open markets.  This did not happen before the update.  Cancel the last update and investigate the problem that is serious, invalidate the possibility of trading especially for those with many heavy indicators purchased.
