I noticed two things
- "Extend Until ...." only works as soon as the candle has closed.
- M3 and M1 Chart are linked to M15 with the option "Copy Chart Drawing ...", but in this case they are not displayed. If you remove the checkmark at "Extend until ...", the OHLC_Ray is displayed.

"Extend Until ...." only works as soon as the candle has closed.

We do not understand this. If the option for "Extend Until Future Intersection" is set for the OHLC ray, then as soon as you finish drawing the ray, it will only extend until it encounters another bar. If you are putting this on the most recent bar, then there is no bar ahead of it to stop it, until the next bar starts and possibly intercepts the line.

M3 and M1 Chart are linked to M15 with the option "Copy Chart Drawing ...", but in this case they are not displayed. If you remove the checkmark at "Extend until ...", the OHLC_Ray is displayed

This makes sense, depending on how far the ray is being drawn. If it is intercepted prior to 15 minutes then there would only be a single dot drawn, which would not be visible. If you turn on a label, then you would be able to see where the drawing is on the chart that has them copied to it.

You really have to look at each drawing to determine how it would get copied to the new chart.

May I please continue this OHLC conversation?
I have two issues as shown here:
https://miro.com/app/board/uXjVOzcriMg=/?moveToWidget=3458764525897156659&cot=14

1. OHLC ray's do not show pricing on the chart when they intersect with future price off the chart. I would like to see the pricing float on the line at the hard right edge and only stop when the intersection is made. See drawing...
2. OHLC rays pricing labels overlap with the candles of the intersection. I would like to see some margin built in by default so the text never gets combined with the candle.

Hope it can be considered at some point in the future if the OHLC Ray or the tools in general get a revision. Ideally, I would like them to feel like the tools on miro.com. There's something special about how the tools were designed on miro. No need to open control panels to edit them. Double clicking a line lets you type text in it (without having a right-click, select from menu, type, click ok on dialog, etc.) On Miro, you just double click and type. To adjust you just click and drag. It feels different than SierraChart and I would like the drawing to be as fluid (and also export to PDF just like Miro allows).
