Hi - are there keyboard shortcuts for navigating/changing ProphetX ?

Such as moving around inside a chart, expanding/contracting the time & price axis, etc. ?

If so, could you post a link/pointer to them?

Thanks...

Thanks for the reply. Lots of stuff there in the hotkeys you pointed to.

However, I was specifically looking for hotkeys to directly manipulate the chart, once it's open:

* scroll chart up/down, left/right, chunks at a time.

* squeeze/expand x-axis and same for y-axis. Legend at bottom of chart has icons to squeeze/expand the x-axis, but I didn't find the same for y-axis, plus would like to do via hotkeys.

I didn't find any of the above in the Preferences programmable hotkeys list, either.

Ideas???

Hello AMA,

We don't have shortcut keys for those maneuvers, but this may help:

In the icons at the bottom of the chart window, you will see left and right
arrow icons at the far right - they scroll the chart left and right, either in
chart pages or more extreme moves.

To scroll the chart up or down, find an open space on the chart, hold down the left button of
your mouse and move the mouse up or down.

To squeeze or expand the Y-axis, hold the mouse down on the Y-axis and move it up or down. If you mess the chart up too much, just hit the enter button to bring it back to its
original appearance. Let me know if you have more questions.

AMA,

I should add that the Page Up and Page Down keys will scroll the chart, one page at a time.

AHA! Page UP/DOWN keys are a nice little trick that'll come in handy, so thx for posting that one.

Woulda thought there'd be a chart scroll up/down key sequence, probably using the arrow keys, but guess no such luck.

Thanks for getting back to me on this...
