TrendSpider Software Update: Custom Annotation Drawing Buttons

Hello Everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving week, a great Black Friday and are getting ready for Cyber Monday’s festivities in a few days! In the meanwhile, we wanted to announce a brand new feature that was just added to the TrendSpider platform today: Custom Annotation Drawing Buttons (Templates.) This is a feature that I wanted to personally announce because it is one that I have been personally waiting for myself for a long time. I categorize this feature in a category I call “quality of life features” because while it is not a huge, massive new capability, it will improve my life and the lives of other traders who use TrendSpider every day in a meaningful and noticeable way.

You may read the article in the TrendSpider Support Center and User Manual about this feature here:

Please see this video for an introduction to the new feature:


How to use and access (step-by-step):

Step 1:  Edit “Properties” on any drawing you have drawn on your chart using your Right Mouse Button.
Step 2: Click on the “Custom Annotations” button at the bottom left of this dialog window
Step 3: Customize the drawing tool that you wish to re-use in the future and give it a unique name
Step 4: Your custom drawing tool is now saved in your sidebar at the bottom in the order in which you created your custom drawing tools. 

You may access each drawing tool by clicking on it or using the assigned hot-key (ALT on a PC or Option on a Mac + the assigned number.)
