I'm trading more than one contract but am not seeing any difference between Ticks and Ticks - Ignore Quantity in SC 1717.

What specific value are you referring to? Is it the Daily Profit/Loss?

Refer to the documentation here for this:
Chart Settings: Profit/Loss Format (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Trading menu)

Always consult the documentation first.

I'm sorry if I'm mistaken, but wouldn't have reported this if I didn't think it was a problem.

I did read the documentation:

Points - Ignore Quantity: This is the same as Points, although the position quantity is ignored and is considered 1. The suffix displayed after this profit/loss value is p. In the case of Daily and Cumulative Profit/Loss values, the quantity will always be considered.
Ticks: This displays the Profit/Loss value in Ticks. Therefore, this is the number of price Ticks of profit or loss. For example, if you bought symbol ABC at 100 and the current price is 102, the tick size is .1, the order quantity is 2, then the profit/loss will be 40 ((102-100)/.1*2). The suffix displayed after this profit/loss value is T.

As I said in post #1, I'm not seeing any difference between Ticks and Ticks - Ignore Quantity in SC 1717. Shouldn't I see a difference between these two if I traded multiple contracts and switch between the two in Chart >> Chart Settings >> Advanced Settings? Tick size is correct in Global Symbol Settings.
