How do I get these colored triangles that mark the opened and closed trades to show on my charts?

Click Show Order Fills on the Trade menu.

That only shows the lines but not the triangles

Look at the settings in Global Settings | Chart Trade Settings and follow the instructions here.

Thanks for the links, but they really don't deal with my issue.

My problem is the "Fill Marker Size" is displaying as a 'dot' instead of as an 'arrow'.

The link below provides instructions how to change its colors but not how to change its shape or size. I am trying to get it to display as an arrow but can't find instructions with any of the available support documents.

The link you reference above is exactly where you change the size of the Order Fills marker:

You may be confusing some of the nomenclature that we have in different places. The Fills Marker is always a triangle. It is not an actual arrow, with a line and a head. The triangle that is drawn will point either to the left or right to note the opening or closing of a position. You can see this in the image in this section:

Thanks John

The issue has been solved by down loading the latest version.

On the screenshot I posted (post#5) my "Fill Markers" were just dots with the appropriate color connecting lines, no Triangles.

When I went to; Global Settings>>Chart Trade Settings>>Order Fills>>Fill Marker Size - the 'dot' did not change size or become a triangle regardless if I chose small, medium or large from the drop down.

With the new version download the Triangles appeared as did the Fill Marker Size - "Pixel Option"

Big Thanks to you and User75002 for persisting.
