Show Distance from Entry of Bracketed Stop Loss and Stop Limits

Hello SC Team,
Is there an existing setting or study that would show the distance in ticks from entry position for the bracketed stops?
The goal would be that when I set a bracket with a Stop Loss of perhaps 10 ticks and a Take Profit Limit of 20 ticks, I may adjust the Stop Loss to some other value, such as 5 ticks.
Is there a way for the chart trading text values to include this data?
Thanks
Mike T

We are not sure exactly what you are looking for, but take a look at the settings starting at the following link that control what is shown in the order lines:
Global Trade Settings Windows: Working Orders >> Display >> Order Quantity (Global Settings >> Chart Trade Settings)

If you are looking for something else, then please give us some additional information of what you are looking for.

Thank you for your response.
What I am looking for is to see, for example, that a stop loss is "12 ticks" or "3 points" from the Price Entry position.
It is hard to measure using the calculator tool, because I accidentally click the stop line and end up moving it on the chart, when I'm only trying to see how many ticks away from price it is.
It would be better if the information shown Order line itself could show how many ticks/points away the attached order is. This would make it easy to precisely adjust it based on risk parameters, price structure, etc.
Is there maybe a workaround to achieve this?
Thanks for any additional help
Mike

The specific item you want is the following:
Global Trade Settings Windows: Working Orders >> Display >> Attached Order P/L Always (Global Settings >> Chart Trade Settings)

That will show the Profit/Loss for the attached orders. If you want that in Points or Ticks, then you need to set the chart Profit/Loss Format to what you want to see it the Profit/Loss as. Refer to the following:
Chart Settings: Profit/Loss Format (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Trading menu)
