Problem with Zig Zag on Study/Price Overlay

In Chart Region 3 I have a study/price overlay. I then added the Zig Zag study but after the 1st or 2nd swing the text is blurred and the study no longer works correctly. I did not remove irrelevant studies because whenever I make any changes in the chart the problem is corrected. TIA

This is not going to work right to apply the Zig Zag study to an overlay of another study. And it is not reasonable for us to support this. This is very complicated. We simply cannot help with this.

However, as long as the output of the Study/Price Overlay study is stable and does not change at earlier bars you should get a stable result with the Zigzag study. What are the input settings you are using for the Study/Price Overlay study?

Although it is hard to say exactly what the problem is. In general what you are doing has complications. There is no guarantee it is going to work properly.

I usually make a quick change in one of the inputs and the problem is corrected. I'll just do that.

I attached an image of the inputs

Maybe I am not doing this correctly but I tried to add a second Study/Price Overlay for the Zig Zag but I get only the line but no text. That is why I originally added the Zig Zag to the overlay.

The settings look fine. We do not have any other suggestions. Also text does not copy over when using the Study/Price Overlay study.
