Good morning,
Unfortunately I cannot find the way to draw the volume profile on the right side, next to the price ladder in the chart basically.
I would like the profile to show values on its left. Hope that is clear and hope it is useful for the community

We are not sure if you are asking specifically for the "Drawn Volume Profile" tool, or just in general for putting a VbP to the right side of the graphics area (next to the price ladder). But, the general rule is the same for both.

In particular, when adding a VbP, you would want to set the following two Inputs for the Study to Yes:
- Right Align Volume Bars
- Align to Far Right

To get the Volume information for each bar to display to the left side of the profile, set the following Inputs for the study:
- Display Volume in Bars: Set to the value you want to display
- Align Volume Numbers to Base Of Volume Bars: No


If you are setting up the Drawn Volume Profile, you will set the items up above and then save these settings as a Study Collection. Then use that Study Collection in the Drawn Volume Profile Configuration. Refer to the following:
