Is it possible to create a toolbar button that will customize the colors of a volume profile on my chart? For ex, on one chart I want all my profiles to be colored red and on another I want them to be colored blue. Is there a quick way to change those colors without going into the profile settings?

Yes. You can use Study Collections:

A study collection can contain just a single Volume by Price study configured the way that you require.

I tried this without success. I saved a red volume profile as a single study collection called "VP red-". On a blue profile in another location on the chart, I selected it and then applied the "VP red-" study, but all that does is recreates the exact same red profile in the same location as the original one that was used to create the collection. It doesn't change the color of the blue one I had selected on the chart.

This actually makes sense the way that study collections are described. It mimics all the settings of the study, not just the color. Is there there another way to change just the profile color quickly? Or is there a way to have multiple defaults for different type of profile? So, if I want to make a red one, I select a DVP1 button and it makes red ones, if I select DVP2, it makes blue ones, etc.

Yes. This is correct. We did not fully understand what you wanted to do.


There is no quick way to change the color of a Volume by Price study without going into the settings for it. Although refer to this section here about how to quickly change study settings:
