Hello,

I apologize in advance if this topic has already been covered but I couldn't find anything, neither in the forum nor in the documentation and I'm starting to lose my hair :)

I tried all the settings and nothing happened, I can't get my graphs with the point of the higher bar at the top and the point of the lower bar at the bottom on the time session displayed.
Instead, I end up with a completely flattened graph and that's a real problem. I can't manually change the whole graphics every time and as soon as it moves in time.

I may have missed a setting elsewhere than in "Scale settings" but I don't know where.

Attached 3 images, 1 and 2 on the defect in question with my "Scale Settings" and 3 what I would like to obtain automatically.

Thank you to the charitable soul who will take the time to enlighten me :)

The reason you are having the issue is because you have studies that are also set to a scale of "Automatic", therefore they are taken into account when determining the overall height of the display. You need to set the studies that you do not want to affect the scaling to use a scale of "Same as Region". Refer to the following documentation on this topic:

Hello,

Thank you for the feedback.

I managed to get what I wanted on region 1 where all the studies in the "chart studies" are in the "same as region" and "automatic" on the chart scale.

On the other hand, for region 2, 3 and 4 nothing is displayed.
For all these regions I use "study/price overlay" to display price bars, highlight and VWAP from another first chart and for day and past day OHLC two "study/price overlay" from a second chart.

This for each Symbol.

These two graphs are displayed correctly and are in "same as region" for all studies and "automatic" for the main scale.

I don't understand why it doesn't work, can you enlighten me?

I have attached a screenshot.

Thanks a lot.

For regions 2, 3, and 4 start with the study that is giving you the "base" of what you want to display (for each region). It sounds like this is a "Study/Price Overlay" of the bar data from another symbol. For this particular study, change the scale to "Automatic". Leave the other studies in the region as "Same As Region".

This should take care of it for you.
