the more I use this software the more I like it.
One of the tools I use extensively is the TPM tool. But possible I do something wrong w/ the filters perhaps as it seems to me , according the attached image, training mode , daily. The Calendar days and bars (Trading days) are showing the same, even though there are 4 WE days in this example.
My current set-up is : host : main CPU iMac (Mojave), 16GB Ram; guest: Windows 10 (latest version) hosted on Virtual Box (latest) ; Optuma : latest.So I do not know of others face the same count, or which settings needs to be used to display the CD vs TD ?

Your chart is displaying Calendar Days so the TPM will show Calendar Days and Bars (Trading Days) as equal. To see the difference right click on a bar and change unselect the “Calendar Day” setting in Filters.

thank you for replying. Yes, indeed. I noticed that, which is why I started the post. When the calendar filter is it would be nice to read at once the different values of the CD and TD (w/o having to change the settings each time)
Furthermore, it skews a proper geometric analysis when in daily. Try this: check the calendar day, draw a trend line. check the “Show Angle” box. Uncheck the filter. The original value of the angle remains unchanged. Draw now a second line over the first one, and see the difference in angle value. It won’t be same.
I think I might post this CD TD in the requests …
Have good WE all,

Thanks Axel. If the weekends / calendar day filter is enabled on the chart then the counting tools (eg Time Measure, Time Price Measure, Time Price Labels) sees the dashes as trading days so they will included in the bar (trading day) count.
The geometry of the chart will change when calendar days are added / removed from the screen because the scaling gets changed. However, note that the Gann fans have a property for bars or Calendar Days, so when the filter is changed then the fans stay constant from a time/price perspective (but not geometric angle).
