OHLC Ray and Drawing TC Window

I was pleased to read in "What is SC working on" that work is also being done in the "Drawings" area.

OHLC Ray is unfortunately the only line that includes information such as date/time and price. In addition, it is quite "easy" to handle this Ray. With "copy and move..." you can move this Ray quite easily. The situation is different with other lines. Sometimes with "copy and move..." and sometimes with "copy and adjust...". Unfortunately there is no consistent unification.
Therefore, I work very much with this Ray. However, from my point of view, I am missing the possibility to cut the Ray. Is there perhaps the possibility to add the cut function.

Regarding "Drawing Tool Configuration/Properties windows" it would also be very helpful if "Allow Copy to other Charts" and maybe "Modify Text" were integrated.

I have saved a lot of "TC" and for certain drawings I know in advance that I have to uncheck "Allow Copy..." or I have to write a repeating text.

Therefore, it would be very helpful if this were also part of TC Window.

Many thanks

If there is work being done for TOOLS, I would greatly appreciate seeing the ability to have 1 or 2 properties/fields added.
1 - Group# - either INT or CHAR. This would allow me (and others to create drawings / tools that have more than one object in them and then later be able to manipulate them as a group.
2 - Note or User Info - Text / CHAR If you, SC design team, do not see a value to Group #, then at least add a filed that can be user modified safely.

As to your issue, in my tools menu, I do not see a OHLC Ray tool. I do see both a Ray tool and a Horizontal Ray tool. Both have the ability to "CUT" as a point in the future. Just right click on the line and it is part of the menu,

Hope this helps,

I apologize. I do see the OHLC ray. I did not open the 'more tools' tab in the menu.

Exactly, it's a bit hidden, therefore it's also part of my "Shortcut Menu"

Good morning @John. I am aware that I am being annoying with this topic, but this one in particular is very close to my heart.

It is about the missing "cut" feature on the OHLC Ray. This Ray contains all the necessary information that the other Rays do not have.

Is it such a big story for you to integrate this function? It would be very helpful to have this.

A reply is not needed.

Many thanks
