Hi, Is there someway to show the trades taken in a live account on a simulation chart? to be able to see the actual trades taken in live during a replay?

There are a few steps:

Step 1:
Go to Trade Activity Log -> Trade Activity, Select 'All Symbols (Non-Sim)', and press 'Apply' button and then Export to a .txt log file,

(Step 1 modified, thank User459170 for finding the issue)

Step 2:
Open exported .txt log file in a spreadsheet program, like Microsoft Excel or LibreOffice, don't let spreadsheet program auto detect time and date,

Step 3:
Replace everything in the 'TradeAccount' column with string 'Sim1' (without quotation marks)

Step 4:
Add string '[Sim]' to the all the symbols in the 'Symbol' column, i.e. ESM2 will be [Sim]ESM2

Step 5:
Save the modified log file as a .csv file, field separated by [TAB], change ext. from .csv to .txt

Step 6:
Back to Trade Activity Log and import modified log file

If you are into coding, Step 2 ~ 5 could be done by a Macro, both Microsoft and LibreOffice support OO BASIC language

It may or may not work depends on your OS or broker

Good luck

This was an amazing solution for a long desired feature. Thanks a ton Tony!!

.txt file messed up the time for me. So I exported as .csv (which retains UTC), made the changes and imported it back. Thanks again for a great solution!

Have you chosen the Trade Activity tab in the trade activity log?

As User459170 noted, the 'Trade Activity' should be selected all the time during the process, your attached image shows the 'Trades' tab is selected as the asterisk sign at top left corner indicates.

Thank you so much. When replaying continuous futures charts, is there a way to show trades of past contracts without changing the symbol?

Yes there is. There is a new setting for this. Chart >> Chart Settings >> Trading >> Load Order Fills for Multiple Futures Contracts.

You need to be on the latest version for this.
