New drawing tools, indicators and other features
The latest update to the cTrader desktop application brings a number of new charting tools that any trader will love. This version includes drawing features such as the ability to lock and hide individual objects and a series of drawings. The recently introduced Object Manager is a new panel that allows you to manage the pictures and indicators on the chart.
Panayiotis Charalampus, Head of Community Management at Spotware, commented on the announcement. “Once again, in keeping with our Traders First ™ motto, we have listened carefully to the feedback from cTrader users. In this version, we were able to add some of the most requested features that traders have asked for when charting. Traders can now hide one or all of their drawings, allowing them to view a clean chart. They can also lock their drawings to avoid accidental mouse interaction. All of the above is included in the new Object Manager window for easy and convenient access. “
This new version comes with various other features such as the ability to duplicate diagram drawings using the Ctrl key and drag and drop with the mouse. The text graphics in the chart can be customized with a variety of styling tools such as font size and text style, bold, italic, or underline. In addition, the link to price option has been removed from the context menu of drawings, and now drawings will be linked to the default price.
