In Common settings, you can customize the overall display of various components of the chart. This section is divided into Chart Field and Display tabs.

The Chart Field tab contains the settings configuring the chart front-end:

4.7_RNs_9

Load Candles setting allows to set the number of candles (ticks) that will appear on a particular chart. By default, the application loads only 366 candles to be displayed on the chart at a time (as a new candle appears on the chart, the first one (the eldest) disappears). But you can change this value by using the up/down arrows or manually entering the values into the box).

The value of this parameter is saved when you save the chart using the ‘Save Current Chart’ button on the chart toolbar or ‘Save Current Chart’ option in the chart context menu.

This parameter is also saved for the current chart instance, when you change the number of Load Candles for a specific chart, leave the chart open and re-log in to the application. This chart will be loaded with the same number of candles that had been set up before.

If you save your desktop profile with a custom number of loaded candles on the open chart, the number of candles will be saved for this chart as a part of the profile.

On Mouse Wheel - configures the mouse wheel to either scroll or zoom the chart.
Use Embedded chart labels – this checkbox allows to move the last candle information and separated indicators' labels inside the chart area:

This functionality can help you to save the screen space when working with the large number of different windows (charts).

Hide Toolbar checkbox also helps to increase the chart’s working space. This functionality hides the toolbar and horizontal scrollbar on the selected chart. The functionality can be accessed via the right-click menu (“Hide Toolbar”) as well as from the Chart Settings dialog.

4.7_RNs_11

Change number of candles on resize - this option is useful for those who often modify the chart window's size – it changes the behavior of the chart data and windows width.

- If the box is checked, then resizing the window will not change the size of displayed candles, instead it will increase or decrease their number to fit the window width.

- If the box is unchecked, then resizing the window will resize the displayed candles, while their number remains fixed.

Use spaces after last candle [in candles] – allows to set a space between the last candle and the right border of the chart after refreshing the chart or changing instrument/chart timeframe.  It helps to visually indicate the last candle on the chart.

  This setting will also be useful if you work with the large number of small charts.

  Note: This parameter affects all types of charts (Candles, Bars, Lines), but the space width is calculated based on candle size.

4.7_RNs_14

Number of loaded candles on scroll [in candles] setting allows to automatically upload preselected number of candles to the chart when working with the historical data by clicking on the left scroll arrow (when the scroll is at the left-most position).

Separating Horizontal Lines each [in pips] – this setting is similar to “Separating Lines each [in candles]” (see below). It allows adding horizontal lines with the specified number of pips.
