New to ProphetX, just setting up some basic stock charts in daily format and have one question:

* the faint background dotted lines(Y-axis corresponding to stock price increments, X-axis
correspond to time units, such as days/weeks) are so faint I can barely make them out.
So, what setting do I tweak to darken them up a lot, so that it will overlay the actual
stock chart in a more visible fashion? Poked around, couldn't find anything obvious...

in ProphetX, right click on the Axis and choose "X-Axis (or Y-Axis) Properties". Then choose the grid tab and you can change the properties of the gridlines to a color or pattern that looks better to you. Once you have the chart looking the way you want it, make sure you right click on the chart and save it as a template. When saving as a template, select "Use as Default Template" and all new charts you create will have those same settings.

BINGO, we have a winner. Exactly what I was looking for, Jay.

I tried right clicking all over the place, but never happened to be hovering right on top of the Y-axis, so never saw the window with these values in it.
