Trading Dom Notes Column

I would just like to echo other users who have asked for a column in the Trading Dom where we can directly type notes related to the price row, similar to Jigsaw. The other option of the label study or lines doesn't provide the same thing.

I imagine there is something major in the coding of the trading DOM that is preventing this, and would require significant refactoring of code to support this feature, otherwise you guys would have added this ages ago.

Basically, at the moment I have to make a sticky each morning with key levels I am watching, and I attach it to the side of my monitor. It would be so nice if I could type these in directly on the trading DOM in a way similar to how excel cells work.

I also want to say thank you to you guys for all the incredible investment you have put into SC since the last time I used it back in 2012. So please don't consider my posts on here as complaints... they are intended to help keep SC as the best trading software out there ;-P

There has been no progress. We do not know when we will be able to get to any particular feature, as we have more than enough work to keep us all busy.

I too would like this feature - the current label process is far to slow for an active DOM trader. I want to be able to mark most recent POC's and LVA's (low volume areas) that I feel are important at the moment I recognize them. I may also want to enter a number to represent the number of times a specific price gets hit. This feature would need CRUD (create, read, update, delete) capabilities on the entries. Clear all would also be nice. I personally would not use any color settings because it would take too much time but others may want that capability. Yes I would really like to see this.

I am very much monitoring this space, and looking forward to this being added... it's actually a killer feature for the SierraChart price-ladder... It's also not that complicated to add... basically just need to be able to click on a cell, and be able to enter some text that can then be saved and displayed in that cell... plus have a button / menu command to "clear all note cells"...

Try using a drawing tool like a horizontal line or stationary text. The horizontal line or horizontal ray has a text field in which you can write your note. That would be the manual way.
You can set a keyboard shortcut for any of the drawing tools. I am not aware of a keyboard shortcut that can access the text field in a drawing tool, that could be helpful.
Closing the text edit menu for a drawing tool does not work with the enter key for some reason. I noticed that pressing the enter key will close many other settings windows in Sierra but not this one.
You can also make use of the 24 drawing tool configurations with the stationary text tool to switch between custom text. Use the keyboard shortcuts Shift + F1 to F12 to switch between your saved drawing tool configs after you have selected the specific drawing. I use this feature to change the color of lines very quickly. Line color coding is helpful if you are working with different types of price levels to qualify trades.

With ACSIL you can program drawings to redraw themselves constantly based on your criteria.
In response to the user that asked about adding a number or modifying the text for how many times a level has been traded, that can be done with ACSIL.
