bullet

bullet

ADDED: Ability to change line types and widths for user-drawn fibonacci levels.

bullet

bullet

FIXED: Corrected formatting problems when printing results list.

bullet

CHANGED: The M shortcut key on the chart has been reassigned to opening the user-drawn object modify/adjust form. As a result, adjustment of the right margin has been assigned to the R key.

bullet

FIXED: Charts will now print in portrait or landscape mode when these settings are specified in the printer dialog box. Multiple copies can also be printed.

bullet

FIXED: Volume bars do not grow to fill chart when number of days per bar is increased.

bullet

FIXED: Display of volatility stops fixed. Previously, when the +2SD checkbox was deselected, the stop with 1 extra SD was shown rather than the one without any extra SDs.

bullet

CHANGED: When chart is selected, the left/right arrows keys now change the shift value rather than adjust the right margin. The right margin can now be adjusted dynamically by clicking the M key with or without the Shift key, or by clicking the R key to enter a value.

bullet

CHANGED: Leaving the Alert Proximity% value empty on any of the scans that use this setting causes TCScan+ to ignore this setting.
