Adding or removing a drawing

Adding a drawing

To add a drawing, perform the following:

  1. In the main toolbar, click Research, then select the Chart tab.

  2. In the chart tab, click Drawing Drawing and choose the annotation you want to add to your chart.

    The drawing icon will switch to display the selected drawing tool. You can draw in any area of the chart tab or gadget including the main chart area, lower study areas and volume area.

  3. To begin drawing, click and drag your cursor along the area of the chart you want to draw on. You will not be able to extend the drawing to another area, but you can adjust or resize your drawing within the selected area.

  4. Note: for drawings that require more than two points (for example Fibonacci extensions) ensure that you click the appropriate number of times to initialize the drawing.

Removing a drawing

To remove a drawing from a chart:

  1. Hover over the drawing you want to remove until the drawing becomes activated.

  2. Then right-click the drawing and select Remove <drawing name>
Tip: to quickly hide or remove all drawings from a chart, right-click anywhere in the chart, and select Hide all drawings or Remove all drawings.
