there is a bug that causes indicators selected to show on specific time frames to show on all time frames

tried with different indis, same results. even the pre-installed spread indicator

this is extremely frustrating

any suggestions?

If you mean when you set up an indicator, and in visualization tab you only select specific timeframe, then it works for me (that indicator only shown on that selected timeframe).

what happens is it will be visible on all time frames until i edit it and then it will disappear on all time frames but the ones selected. but this means i have to do an edit to each of the indicators anytime i want to save the template(!) actually two edits to each because i have to change the edit back again. i cannot really do much of anything unless i remove the indicators i guess(?) the mt4 moving average does not do this but a bunch of others do including at least one of the other mt4 indicators

i use multi-time frame charts so i need to save a template on one chart and then load it on all charts. i choose to keep a few basic indicators like spread and adr only show on one chart and this whole double-edit re-saving thing makes it impossible to use

Set the visualization first then save to a template. It means that save to the template is the last action. Afterwards you can use the template.

do you have the indicator 'spread' to test? this one came with mt4 from pepperstone

other indicators like moving average work ok but many others do not work

this has been happening a while now on different installs of mt4 and on different computers so i don't think it is just my mt4

no, I tested it with standard bolinger band indicator and another non-standard one.
