SC Team - At present one can set the right margin space using sc.NumFillSpaceBars=20 or so. However this is dependent on the bar space and varies based on how squeezed the bars are.

However when the price scale is works fine independent of the bar space. Would it be possible to provide an option to have a right margin space - to a fixed space in terms of pixels rather than bar space?

Attached are the images describing this request. As you can see in the images - I can preserve the space in Ninja and wanted to see if there is anyway to get something similar feature in SC as well. Please note that you do something similar automatically regular price scale already and wanted to see if it is possible to extend that to Right Margin space as well.

Please note that this request is indirectly related to the planned usage of the right margin space for GDI objects - where it's critical to have a fixed space which doesn't depend on the bar space.

From what I recall - This feature of fixed right margin( which is not dependent on bar space) is already available in Ninja/MC/marketDelta and would be very nice to have this feature in SC as well. Please see if it is possible to implement this feature - if there are no specific technical limitations/issues/major challenges.

SC Team - Wondering if there is any possibility of having this feature sometime in the near future (even if not immediate) - so that I can design my project/code accordingly. If this not possible for any technical reasons - that's fine as well - would try to find alternate ways do it (though might not be as elegant as fixed right margin space). Just looking for your input so that I can make a decision on which direction to take..

most annoying issue with this software so far... I expected to be able to increase my margin to the right... sadly, not to easily... now I know why... hopefully they will add the feature, which is rather simple...
