My ticker box display is working fine using the approach you described..
(However, I asked in a second attachment to this message if there was a way to make it wider to acomodate longer names securities. See note below)
If you look at the original help for "Preferences" you will see that there were two options provided for display of these names.
One for the ticker box and the other for "tree" (the title line at the top of the price display panel),.
In earler versions of Amibroker, I did have the security name included in the "tree" at the top of the price pane.
When the Presentation panels were reorganized in later versions, only the ticker box option seems to have been carried over on this page.
Which is why I asked about the other one having "gone missing" - I assumed the capability to do this still exists in the code. But i did not find a way to activate it..
Do you know how to activate this second display of the the name information?
(I note that the present display on the ticker box truncates names. With truncation many long names (funds and ETFs especially) it is unclear if the intended fund or other security has been selected from a long list that appears the same in the ticker box.)
Inn any case thanks for the great answers details.
About 10 years ago symbols window was reorganized - you are apparently referring to that old layout. Since then symbol window has two panes and tree only holds categories while and symbols are presented in the pane below as a list which allows extra functionality like quick search and sorting by full name.
