Hi Community,

 

after I installed a new instance on my brand new laptop I realized that opening a chart directly from the Market window (via Ctrl+Click and drag onto the 'work area') does not load the chart into a new window but rather it replaces the one in the window which has the focus. As I seem unable to find out the right parameter / switch to change (in my old instance this works like a charm - each pair you drag onto the MT desktop opens in a separate window) - can you enlighten me on this, please?

 

Any help would be highly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Mac

I do not think the ctrl key has any meaning in this case. Dragging the symbol from the Market window shows the +(plus) sign next to the mouse pointer on multiple places - naked chart area, toolbar, window title or charts titles. It opens the additional chart when dropped.

The OP is right, the CTRL key can be used to open a new chart even if you drop on an already open chart.

Of course you are right that, if CTRL key doesn't work you just have to drag anywhere (if allowed) except on an existing chart.

A new chart can be opened by executing of the "File – New Chart" menu, "Window – New Window" menu command, or by pressing of the New Chart button of the "Standard" toolbar. The list of securities available will appear at performing any of the above actions. Having selected the necessary symbol from this list, one can open its chart. New charts can also be opened from the "Market Watch" window, holding Ctrl and dragging the element of the list (the symbol) from the window into any point of the workspace of the terminal, or having executed the "Chart Window" command of the context menu.Chart Opening - Working with Charts - MetaTrader 4 Help

Oh, I realised it was tricky. You should not add the ctrl key when you are already above the chart area... you must press it either before you enter the area or move the mouse out for a second. Probably intended for clever IT specialists.
