locating indicators on charts

By a process of elimination, the issue seems to be ‘hidden’ indicators within charts
I guess you’ve either come across this before or not – difficult to ‘intuit’ it, it seems to me
But I do appreciate your efforts Graham – thank you
As a newcomer to PRT, but having subscribed to either CQG or TT over the past 25+ years, this platform seems ‘difficult’, to say the least.
This basic stuff should be straightforward, no?09/13/2020 at 5:07 PM #144122
It’s not difficult at all and doing all the ‘normal stuff’ is intuitive.
How much memory do you have on your PC / Laptop?
Did you click the Click Here link and try to increase memory available to PRT?
I know that does not solve your dilemma … where are the hidden indicators … but it may move you on so you can finish the day not feeling insane! 🙂09/13/2020 at 5:11 PM #14412409/13/2020 at 5:12 PM #144125

The only way we can hide iNDICATORS is by maximising the Price Chart in the window and so then the Indicators cannot then be seen.
The Complete version you are using is different to my version but here is the symbol to click on my version …
Do you have a maximise / restore symbol anywhere09/13/2020 at 5:15 PM #14412809/13/2020 at 5:41 PM #144133
From a quick look it seems I have mine on … “Let windows automatically determine best for Program” or some such wording! 🙂
What is yours set to?
Above is a windows setting, not part of PRT.
Although I vaguely recall ages ago I allocated a specific amount of RAM to PRT, but maybe I dreamt it!? 🙂
If you find out anything more sensible than above let us know?09/13/2020 at 5:47 PM #14413509/13/2020 at 6:33 PM #144142
No – that’s not what is going on – something more insidious and the fact that you don’t know what can possibly be going on worries me. It seems from the posts that you are pretty experienced.
This thing is currently unusable for me – I’ll be closing my account, which is not even yet opened(!) – and reverting to TT
It’s a shame because I like the presentation of PRT
Sorry to have wasted both your weekend and mine Graham 🙁
Thank you for your time09/13/2020 at 6:50 PM #144147

Did you check your settings as 228 MB is woefully inadequate and that is what the message you posted is saying … that your PRT Platform has (only) 228 MB allocated to it.09/13/2020 at 6:54 PM #144148

Don’t close your Account as you have only had input / help from myself and I am not a PRT employee etc.
Somebody else may add something more meaningful on a normal working day.
Also others are not having the same Issue as you and so the Issue is very unlikely to be related to the PRT Platform.09/13/2020 at 6:56 PM #14414909/13/2020 at 7:11 PM #144151
Actually I think you got it with your final comment re memory usage
A few days ago I was having an error message pop-up saying ‘SE Binary has stopped working’ and I thought it was an issue with the recently updated JAVA program
So I followed the link below which in order to make things more stable had me (I think) limit memory usage in any one JAVA application to 256MB
Anyway I just reversed that, rebooted, and so far no more ‘issues’
I can even open the ‘default template’ easily now!
So thanks for that and apologies, I thought you worked for PRT
I appreciate your time09/13/2020 at 7:24 PM #144152
From your posts I thought you were more interested in … where are these hidden Indicators … than just getting it working!? 🙂
I noted straight off that the 228 MB RAM Allocated was abnormally low!
Oh well, PRT may think I’m not all bad after all … as I’ve saved one defector!!?? 🙂09/13/2020 at 7:29 PM #144153
No, the issue of the hidden indicators does worry me, but I’m no purist – I just want it to work consistently so I don’t have to allocate any of my own – very limited – bandwidth to it whilst I’m using it
Thanks again …09/14/2020 at 9:19 AM #144179
With PRT v11, you can “hide” the names of the attached indicators on the price chart. This option is available in the “Chart settings” section of the price settings window (see attached picture).
