I use Microsoft Paint to draw on my charts, Gill Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ
But Lisa is that just to draw on the captured picture afterwards? I mean to draw on MT4 on the actual chart...
yes ~ it’s to draw on a captured chart …
(sorry I cannot help with the other) Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ
It's ok - thanks anyway Lisa >I/p>
Hi Gill - I am not that good on the MT4 charts set up - but i do use one from Alpari in my charts "wardrobe" purely to keep an eye on some custom built EA's I use.
I managed to get my particular EA coded 4 yrs ago from some guy who was always on the James 16 thread and seemed a guy who had a large library of all different "apps" for the MT4 platform. Unfortunately I cannot find his e-mail address nor name - but if you scroll though MT4 chat line sites etc or James 16 group I am sure you will find someone who can assist you and supply what you need as a free download. regards Peter
Thanks Peter - will have a look
just grab a Sharpie permanent marker and draw on monitor
feel like it sometimes cris
again is that to draw on captured image? will have a peep at link anyway thanks Janos
On your MT4 tool bar you have a number of tools available to you to help you draw, you have tools for lines, text, circles, squares, etc.... these tools are all part of the MT4 Platform.
If you want to draw anything else on your charts that's not inherent in the MT4 platform i.e. you want to draw 'free hand' then the only way as far as I am aware is to use a screen capture type tool as both Lisa and Janos have mentioned. If things get desparate ((and i am worried they do for you ( i.e. baby in washing machnine)) you could get a semi permanent marker and draw directly on to your monitor. ;-)
The James16 thread that Peter mentions is something totally different, nonetheless it's an interesting old thread, that's been read by many a trader and forex guru.
free hand pen that's kind what i was thinking of Max - but am going to try the tools on the terminal again
Here's link to something about 'easypen' I mentioned... but I can't find much else on it
am i really blind or can anyone see a download link on that ?
also, where i got that link from, the guy said it was mt5
anyway for now i'll take Keith's advice and try the tools provided...
THANK U EVERYBODY XXXX
Thanks Keith - yes i was messing with those very tools yesterday - and in actual fact, as you point out, they might be enough - what else do I want to draw, maybe it's all there... I will have another mess with it today - while meggie is in the wash... i mean after she has her bath (hehe)
