Arrange a dashboard by moving and resizing time machines.

Each of the charts you see in the viewport is actually a time machine. Time machines are represented by rectangular elements with dark-turquoise boundaries.

Time machines may feature one or more timeline charts, right inside them. In other words, timeline charts live within time machines.

1. To move a time machine around the viewport hit the Shift key, left-click on the time machine, and move it to your preferred location.

2. To adjust the size of a time machine left-click and drag a border. The operation affects the size of the time machine without affecting the scale.

3. To adjust the size of a time machine keeping the same data in view hit Shift, left-click and drag a border. The operation affects the size of the time machine and, at the same time, adjusts the scale so that the same data remains in view.

4. To adjust the aspect ratio of a time machine to fit your screen use the following hot-key combination when the mouse pointer is over the chart: Ctrl or ⌘ + Shift + A.

Click to learn more about dashboards

A dashboard is a collection of time machines, each containing any number of charts.

The concept of the dashboard allows having multiple charts configured all at once, so that you may consult different exchanges, different markets, different time frames, or different technical studies on demand, simply by moving around and zooming in or out. You may put charts side by side, or even superimpose them to study market flows, search for arbitrage opportunities, or simply keep them in sight when you analyze particular market situations.

At the moment, the functionality of a dashboard is trivial: grouping time machines. However, in the future, it will offer various features to enhance the user experience.
