Drawings Keep Disappearing

Hi Glen,

Thanks I have seen the video. Your description was a bit confusing. The objects do not stay on the list for any chart and any symbol. The drawings stay on the list only when you change symbol on the same chart. The chart objects/indicators apply to the chart itself and not to a chart/symbol combination. If you need a clean chart and a separate set of chart objects/indicators, you can create a new chart.

Best Regards,

Thank you for taking the time. I see... That is just not a logical wat to do it in my opinion. But that is because I am very used to TradingView for charting. Drawings can be locked (so thet can't be moved) and drawings stay locked to the symbol, not the workspace.

Anytime I have made drawings of objects like trendlines, boxes, horzizontal lines etc. they get lost, move or (mostly) disappear all tothether. 

Whenever I made drawings in one workspace and then later reload that workspace on another computer, the drawings are gone. This also happens when I reload the workspace on the same computer. Why does this happen? It's a real pain to have to redraw everything in every single time. 

And sometimes there will be objects listed in the objects list pertaining to a symbol in that workspace but those objects are nowhere to be found on the chart...

Would be nice if drawings would be locked and cloud synced so we don't lose them.

Is the current behaviour a feature or a bug?

Coming back to this original issue. I see that the drawings were not dissapearing but actually all defaulted to a white color (when previously I had them all colored red, purple or blue) whenever I switched between accounts or workspaces. Causing them to totally blend in with my white background.

The thing is, this happens sporadically and not every single time I switch either account or chart layout. However it remains highly inconvenient when it does happen.

issue with drawings disappearing

Hi , 

I am saving some drawings on different charts in the same workplace.

I only use web ctrader.

However, I have found that Some drawings just disappear after a few days, while drawings on other charts still remain.

Also, the viewing preference ( I had removed grid spearators ) also reverted back on these charts sometimes ( charts where the drawings went missing)

I have sent a mail to you at community@spotware.com with the screenshot of the same chart ( in same workspace) across a couple of days.

Please let me know the following :

1. Is there some way I can save my drawings on the charts for as long as I need or do the drawings go away after some time?

2. If it is possible, please let me know what steps I need to take for this.

Regards,

Rishabh

Indeed the drawings are saved but not displayed. In this case just two trendlines out of many others. But not because of having the same color as the background, just not being shown. Any hints?

RE: RE: RE:

Hi traders, just landed here looking for a solution to the same 'line disappearing issue'. I have realised in my cTrader the lines are saved however they all move to the same exact location so only one is visible (and you can see it only if located somewhere visible on the screen). Anyone got any idea of how to fix this? I literally have to reposition lines each time I refresh the page or re-open my laptop, it's such a time-waster.

Thanks

Hi elenigna,

Is it possible to record a short video demonstrating the steps you are following to reproduce this behavior?
