The number is too long to read in realtime in the following:
1) DOM graph - volume
2) Quote Board - volume
3) Quote Board - numberOfTrade
4) Time&Sale - volume

E.g. some forex contracts have 7 digit of volume. It is distraction to read the exact number down to the first digital place in trading. Hope to have a setting to display a customizable short format.

The following is some suggestions for consideration:
1) Use metric H(hundred),K(kilo), M(million), B(billion), and T(Trillion)
2) Use separator (such as ',') in long number
3) Use scientific notation such as 10^3.
4) Option to only show the most significant digitals.

In some cases, Sierra Chart will display volumes using the Kilo and million suffixes.

Please provide an example of where the volume numbers are too large. Attach an image to this post.
