HOTKEYS

I am finding the idea of leaving jforex almost impossible because there are so many poorly implemented features in ctrader IMO  -

In this instance, the HOTKEYS seem to be imposed on us as a pre-ordained set of options 

It is mind-boggling to me that there are no hotkeys for the drawing tools - if you have never used that feature you don't know what your missing - I find the hotkeys on offer in Ctrader mostly useless - they do not suit me at all - why are they imposed? - in jforex you can hotkey anything and everything - so you can be creative - I really struggle with platforms that decide for you how you're supposed to trade.

RE:

Yes, the actual user-friendliness is a big problem in cTrader if you compare it to other newer trading platforms like Quantower.

It looks like cTrader is made by people who never actually trade. 

I wish there would be many more possibilities to do more stuff just using simple hotkeys.   

And programming a few HOTKEYs should be quite easy IMHO. 

The funny thing is that we don't need more indicators, more algos, more bots, we need to actually trade... ;) and every time there is a new ctrader update, I mostly see stuff useless for actual trading and making money.
For example, the new calendar released last year is seriously horrible. It takes almost 1/4 of my screen in order to see a few news during my trading session. Loads of useless info. What most traders would actually need is just a few lines in the corner of each chart that there is upcoming news in how many minutes, it's impact level + alert where the user would define how many minutes before the news would he be notified. That's all most traders need IMHO.  

Spotware, pleasseeee!
