This setting is missing under Global Settings >> Tool Settings >> Chart Values in version 1293

I need to see the price and time under my Pointer when I move it across the charts.

After a review of the Chart Values Tool, this option did not make sense and it did not work entirely as it was intended.

You need to use the Tools >> Chart Values tool which is documented here:

To make it similar, you can set the following in Global Settings >> Tool Settings >> Chart Values:
Uncheck "Show Crosshair"
Check "Always On When Chart Values Tool Selected"

If you do not want to see the Compact Tool Values Window then uncheck Window >>Show Compact Tool Values Window

Please do not ask for the previous behavior back because it will not be added back.
