    Tick time frame selection in chart top toolbar

    When I'm using a tick based ES Chart, the second drop down menu in the toolbar only gives me 1 minute, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, etc minute intervals. Why haven't they implemented tick intervals in this drop down menu when I'm looking at a tick based ES chart? I understand I have to go to the Data Series window to change the tick intervals, but when will Ninjatrader have the ability to switch tick sizes on the fly in the toolbar itself?

    NT 7 has some of the most tedious menus ever, can this be updated? Seriously, has anyone not noticed this?

    Hello dennho,

    You can quickly change timeframes in charts by typing the new timeframe. Please see the link below under 'How to change a Data Series' for information.



    To change bar series:

    Type interval value plus the interval suffix (Value +suffix). Examples: "5M" for 5 minute bars, "100T" for 100 tick bars, etc.

    Available suffixes & interval:

    M
    Minute

    T
    Tick

    V
    Volume

    R
    Range

    S
    Second

    D
    Day

    W
    Week

    MO
    Month

    Y
    Year

      I tried this, but I would have to type "ES (space) 03-12" 512T or whatever, every time.
      I understand you are trying to give advice, but this is still quite a cumbersome method of changing time frames.

      I would like to make a suggestion to the developers about this, but I'm not sure if it would ever get through. It really is quite simple, you know, there's obviously more than one way to chart an instrument, more than with just minute charts. A drop down menu of tick intervals would make the most sense.

      Didn't NT 6.5 have this feature?

        I will forward your suggestion to add tick intervals in the interval drop down menu of the chart toolbar to Development. Thank you for your feedback.

          I'd like ticks short-cut menu be added too.

              Thanks for the update. Can the interval of the drop down menu match that of the current data series? Such as if I have a tick based chart, its tick intervals, minutes for a minute chart, and range in drop down for a range based chart?
