I have been waiting for you to remove the sticky about feature requests before I asked because I really need this to be added and was trying to be respectful of your schedule.

I use constant range scale, and it is a big part in how I trade. I only use one chart-book with a quote board to go between symbols and I have to re-size all 5 charts every time I go to a new symbol and it really is a time consuming thing to do especially when I need to go between two symbols rapidly back and forth while trading.

I have put a lot of thought into this while the sticky was up for ways this can be as easy as possible to fix & still not effect anyone that likes it this way and the best thing I have come up with is an added "constant range scale:" box in the scale menu where the others are. It could be called something like "Constant Range Scale: Automatic On Symbol Change" where basically on a symbol change it gives you an automatic scale until you use the value scale to re-size it as needed then would go back to constant range until the next symbol change. This is just a suggestion, any way it could be fixed would be so much appreciated.

Like the title says, I am desperate for this and I would be willing to pay you if I really need to. Please consider this. If you want I can send you my chart-book in an email so you can better see the situation.

Thank you

It might be better if we just set the Constant Range to make sense for the particular range of data being displayed. For example, we could just set the constant range to the highest high and lowest low for the visible values for the main price graph after a symbol change.

The improvements to the constant range scaling are now done in the latest prerelease. Please update.

The interface to TransAct has been Updated to use this new protocol:

it works great. I cant thank you guys enough for this one

it asked me if i wanted to block a sierra/transact bridge when i opened it the first time but that was probably a one time thing for the GSP

anyway, it looks good on my end. thanks again

What you saw was probably the Windows firewall asking you to "unblock" the TransAct bridge. Select Allow. Although it may not really matter because it is a local network connection. To be on the safe side choose Allow.
