Very often IRT will suddenly paint trendlines that make no sense and didn't exist moments earlier in panel 2 of my chart. If I move the mouse over the area, they are gone when it redraws.



I have tried to make sure all trendlines have been deleted. If there is a global "clear all trendlines" or "clear all objects" let me know.

The lines make no sense, anytime I've drawn a TL it has been a horizontal line, not some slanted vertical line as what is shown. This is why I believe this to be a bug.

Using IRT 10.4.10.

Anyone else seen this or know of a fix? It is persistent (can't just exit/reload and it be fixed) and I am also quite certain has exited for the last few versions of IRT.

Very strange, I have IRT on my laptop and I've never seen that happen...

More info:

The 'trendlines bug' appears once a new bar is closed. For example, my chart can be clear of these lines and be correct. I am no longer focused on my chart (mouse). A new bar forms, and now, the "new" trendlines (bug) appear where they did not exist a bar earlier.

If I move my mouse and focus on the chart, then sweep from right to left over the chart, IRT will redraw and the trendlines are gone.

Until some point in the future when a new bar is formed It absolutely does not happen ever bar. In fact, I have no clue what is special about a certain bar every now and then (several times per day) that causes the behavior.

Can anyone confirm or deny a global "clear all trendlines" or "clear all drawing objects" type of an option? I'm not seeing such an option if it exists, perhaps it would be a good place to start.

I used to have all sorts of trendline issues with IRT but a lot less nowadays. There is an option to clear the trendlines from each chart pane:

Thanks, I'm not sure how I missed that. Have applied it now, and will hope it resolves the problem.

Double click an open spot on the chart to bring up the Edit Preferences For... window and check all the elements you have listed. It is possible that it is something other than a Trendline, maybe a CI-Custom Indicator or other element that is outside the verticle scale until x happens. If that is the case you can left click the price scale to bring up the Verticle Scale window, check off Use multiple scales as required. Say OK, then go back into the verticale scale window and click the View Altenate scale button, it may then show what is outside the verticle scale range.

As far the cursor making it disappear when you drag over it, set your chart perference to Redraw Full chart.

Mike, if this is still happening, share that chart with me (either to this thread or [email protected] ) and I'll take a look.

Mike,

You can also click on the chart and then hit the delete key on your keyboard. That will bring up a list of ALL the elements in the chart. From here you can click on any element and hit Apply to remove it from the chart. You can also do multi-select in this window by ctrl- or shift-clicking on elements and then Applying.

I did some work on trendlines for the next release that should prevent this issue. The issue being related to very old trendlines getting drawn in the current window. The next release with either be 10.4.12 or 10.5 beta.

Cool, thanks. I haven't been able to test the above suggestions yet, but glad to see this should be resolved
