Here is my problem:
When I draw a pitchfork on one timeframe and then switch to another timeframe the pitchfork shifts and is not accurate anymore.
How can this be fixed?
Please view pictures below:

Picture1: 1hr timeframe line of pitchfork meets low of candle
Picture2: 30min timeframe line of pitchfork has shifted below candle and is not accurate anymore.

There is very known problem. Not bug. See example.
Trend line created on the h1 chart

then timeframe was changed

Surprised?

Well,it gives an inaccurate picture.
The problem is that the beginning of the trendline attaches to a candle.
When you switch timeframes then that candle is obviously not the same anymore.
If the TL was locked and not attached to a candle then it shouldn't shift when switching timeframes.

To avoid problem create objects on the m30 chart. Then change to h1
