On the Ruler Bar, you will notice three Margin Arrows, two on the right price ruler and one on the bottom date ruler. These arrows are used to center your chart within these “margins.”

To move the margin click on the arrow and drag to the new location. Then click on the center chart button in the Standard Tools toolbar or right-click and choose Center Chart to resize the chart to these margins.

 

 

Scaling and Moving

Scaling

From the chart: On your ruler, you will see a dotted line splitting it in half. This is on both the Price ruler and the date ruler.

If you want to move your chart horizontally or vertically, click and drag the section of the ruler bar closest to the chart. To scale your chart horizontally or vertically (zoom in and zoom out), click and drag the section of the ruler bar farthest from the chart.

Zoom in/Zoom out: At the bottom of the chart below the dotted line, on the far left and right side are arrows labeled Zoom in and Zoom out. Clicking on these arrows will step zoom in and out.

Move the chart with the Hand Tool: You can click and drag on the chart using the Hand Tool of the Standard Tools toolbar to move the chart. Holding down Ctrl on your keyboard will activate the Hand Tool while Ctrl is pressed.
