Hello.
Just a few feature suggestions that have come to mind:

A Natural Language-Outputter
If a formula can validate without errors, how about just parsing it to output a natural-language version of the formula? If this was possible, writing basic formulas in natural language would be within reach.

Scan, formula, and condition notes
The ability to comment in formulas would be helpful. When hovering over a column header, say, one could see a popup with notes. Sometimes it's helpful to go beyond descriptions crammed into the header field.

ASCII character output in table data
In columns, return and color ascii characters of a wide variety (beyond checks, Xs, or values).

Sum-of-conditions-met column:
A "meta" column that will count the number of colums in a watchlist or scan that meet a condition. For example, I have a bunch of conditions as criteria. I'd like a column at the end to count the number of colums returning "true checkmarks" as a number and then sort by that ranking. This will help comparision among candidates.

Ranking Method:
Similar to the above, but a ranking feature. A user would ascribe a certain value (1-10) to columns. The Ranking Output column would calculate the declarations, possibly using variables and references. The output is a score than can rank candidates more precisely and according to a specific calculation.

Thought I'd keep a running list here as thoughts come to mind.

DISTRIBUTION

I'd like to see some statistics tools. For example, I'd like to see a distribution of conditions-true for a given paramater. For instance, show me a distrubution of the number of true conditions met for crossess of the lower BB if I have defined a range for SD and a range for the period.

I'd like to see the output in a table similar to the grid used for watchlists. The columns might represent the distribution curve from left to right, with the highest occurences in the center. The cells would output the parameters for that segment of the disribution.

Aslo, after-hours/pre-market scans would be unbeatable. I belive that it would make TC2000 the perfect software.

Is it something that we might see in a future?

The ability to draw horizontal lines across the entire screen (e.g. through all the panes/charts).

Ugh. I meant vertical lines. The ability to draw vertical lines that span the screen. Sometimes I like to align chart events with plots above and below.

Hello! Thank you for this amazing software, still learning more every day and it keeps getting better and better.

 

A) A coloring tool for the drawing toolset to paint multiple lines with a single click rather than having to edit and change the color

B) A way to highlight monthly expiry dates on options on the stock chart, i spend about 3 to 4 minutes setting up vertical lines on every stock i look at but want certain dates highlighted ( earnings too )

 

Thank you!

No need to reply; just keeping notes.

suggestion: a feature to automatically email a screenshots of a given whole-screen layout on a given interval to a given email address/es.

--related, trigger the same screenshot based on rule. e.g. "if SPY is crossing over the 20EMA, take a screenshot of "SPY WATCH" layout and email to dude@geocities.com."

reason: sometimes a picture is worth a thousand alert configurations.

I kind of do need to reply with at least the "Thank you for your suggestion.", or I won't know if I have submitted the suggestion to development yet or not (this has been submitted as have all of the suggestions above it).

I can delete my old replies to make the page shorter however.

Oh, got it. I just meant no need to spend time if it was discretionary. Sustain your workflow as needed and reply away. ;)

On the Quadrant Lines tool, having the option to extend the center line to the right would be helpful.

I would add a request or suggestion for a Cycle drawing tool. Something like the Quadrant tool or Fib Time Zones, but Vertical, and with constant, not Fib, distances between lines.It would be useful for highlighting visually repetitive patterns, such as monthly or quarterly cycles, such as behaviour between earnings announcements.

ideas:

more decimal places:
in panes, abilty to select number of decimal places for the side scale. Some ratios have meaningful changes occuring in the hundredths and it could be useful to get into the thousdandths.

panes as objects:
ability to copy/paste panes within layouts (and/or name and save them as objects, which would make it faster to place them in other layouts).

You can save a pane by clicking on one of the indicators in the pane and select Save as Indicator....

Thank you for the pointer above, Bruce. Helpful.

idea:
animations/transitions. I had an idea: what If I were able to set a visual toggle between two overlayed chart types (Heiken and candlestick), where one fades in while the other fades out on some interval? I'm looking at a pane right now of a ticker and would love to see heiken for five seconds and then candles for five, etc.

replay: be able to see redraw the time series of a given ticker between two periods. the animations should compress the data so that it's essentially a recreation of the market's actual time at various prices (not a linear redrawing but a scaled recreation of price at time).

idea:

custom chart libraries. one interesting type might be to visually mark the start-of-week and end-of-week bars on a long timeseries, or a tool that would let users style selected bars by rule (day of week, every X bars, weekday number, economic cal overlays, etc.)

cycle finding: use conditions as the basis for regression analysis over a period to meet cyclical criteria. What this would do look for significant frequencies of a given condition true over a period as a function of that occurence's periodicity. Periodicity could be tendency toward a day of week, a number of bars, price action after a given hi/lo; market breadth condition, etc.

team layouts: maybe a special layout type that would make it possible for users to invite one abother (from within the TC ecology, not "anyone") and have sidebar comms and data sharing.

Idea: 
When adding a horizontal line drawing at price, the ability to input a label and label position on the Edit Horizontal Line interface.

E.g.
color
value
label [text input]
label position [above price, below price, left, indent left]


Output would be something like:

----------------------------111.12
                              safety stop

or 
                             safety stop
----------------------------111.12

For watchlists and charts, I'd like the ability to include additional emojis - like a star, square, triangle, etc.

Suggestion:

Symbol references. Make it possible to:

-get correlations / build correlation matrices; e.g. SPY's correlation to [watchlist]

-evaluate specific events, e.g.: "when[SPY] does this, count if true/false that [watchlist] did that"

-evaluate pairs for a wide variety of pairs-trading criteria (divergences, etc.)

...
