    Pan chart by dragging with mouse (without ctrl) both horizontal/vertical

    Dear Ninja

    Could we change the way you zoom / pan charts like we can in trading view ?
    - right mouse click + mouse move up/down/left/right = pan/drag chart chart both horizontal / vertical
    - right mouse click on vertical axis + mouse move up/down = scale / zoom vertically
    - right mouse click on horizontal axis + mouse move left/right / zoom = scale horizontally

    I think this works way better then the way its working now in Ninja

    And while you are busy. At the moment when you click on right click in the chart on price itself (or any indicator) (e.g. a moving average) it gets selected
    and you cannot move the chart around. Please make this optional. Many times I just want to pan/move the chart but instead I accidentily select price itself or an indicator and
    I have to find a blank spot on the chart to actually be able to move the chart around

      Excuse me.. off course I meant drag/moving the chart using the left mouse button, not the right mouse button

          It would be nice to pan in any direction without having to press the CTRL key.

              Using NT8 for the first time ever this week. To CTRL+ for panning the chart in any direction is an additional step that is frustrating. Please improve the feature where it can simply pan, if the selection for crosshair is Pan.

                    Hello,

                    I am a new member and I am writing this message because I got interested in Ninjatrader for day trading. I tried the demo and the lack of free pan by using only left mouse button has disappointed me a lot and is currently holding me back. I am currently using Tradingview which gives great experience from this point of view, I saw this issue has been brought to attention over and over in this forum during last years, but no care was given. Is there any chance to see this implemented in a near future? I just can't believe such a basic and easy to code functionality can't be inserted in such an advanced platform.

                      Hi lukedaps, thanks for posting.

                      I will add another vote to the feature request and let our development team know of the demand from multiple users.

                      Best regards,
                      -ChrisL

                        Who the hell designed this feature? Who is resizing the vertical scale of their chart often enough to make it the default? Someone intentionally decided to prohibit users from moving up and down on a chart when that is exactly what charts do. I can't believe this is one of the most popular trading platforms.

                          Hi All, or use my "SidiChartScroll" indicator. After activation, you can move and zoom only with the mouse in all directions.

                            Hello all,
                            IIRC the requirement for Ctrl was a requirement specifically introduced by NT founder Ray years ago in NT7. It was a move criticised by Users. AFAIK no explanation/justification was given, so a User developed an add-on workaround for NT7.
                            Same cycle for NT8.
                            Beats me…..

                              I just asked NinjaTrader about adding this feature to be able to pan the charts WITHOUT having to use the Ctrl key on keyboard (because some of us use a TV as a monitor and our computer is accross the room). Here is their reply:

                              "A feature would need to see fairly significant demand, though other factors such as ease of implementation may affect this as well. For reference though your request is the only vote/request for this feature, so at this time it does not seem likely to be added/changed."

                              So, apparently, this forum does not serve as a measure of "interest," or they don't read it. I think I'll stick with Sierra Charts for now, which have this functionality and more. Sometimes one has to assess the cost of "free."
