Changes in 5.5.32 (9/10/2021) since the release of 4.2.182 (10/23/2020):

  • TIPro 5.5 introduces dock panel windows. This allows users to place Alert, Top List, Multi-Strategy, Charts, Compare Count, AI / Holly, Single Stock, Price Alert, Brokerage Plus and Premium RBI/GBI windows into a dock window as tabs, window panels, or free floating windows attached to a dock panel window. Users can rearrange the window panels to the top, bottom, right, or left from other panels in the dock window. Users can continue to use the standard floating windows in addition to the new dock panel windows by disabling this feature in the Layout tab of the Tools > Options menu window.
  • Added “Docked Channel Bar” and “Docked Window” to the “New” toolbar menu.
  • Users can change the windows to open in a dock panel instead of a normal floating window using the “Open in dock window” setting in the Layouts tab of the Options window.
  • Access the Duplicate, Change Tile, Pinned, and Save or Share to Cloud context menu items of a dock window by right clicking on the title bar of the dock window.
  • Added auto-size grid column sizing for all windows containing grids. This feature is controlled in the Layouts tab of the Options window.
  • We updated the EULA displayed and accepted during the install process.
  • Fixed a bug where the user could not replace a price alert after reaching the 500 price alert limit.
  • Fix a bug that can cause new installs of TIPro to immediately crash without displaying the window. The fix required that the latest version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable for Visual Studio to be installed.
  • In the AI Strategy Trades window, clicking on the Conservative, Moderate, and Aggressive profit labels will customize the displayed columns. Clicking on the labels will restore user specified columns.
  • Fixed an issue where a cloudlink created in the *web version* from a chart that *has additional child panels for other indicators* will not restore properly in the desktop version.
  • Appended " (private)" to the symbol list names in the tree and comboBox views in the Symbol Lists tab of the Configuration window. This should fix issues with differentiating personal and shared symbol lists with the same name.
  • Fix bug not detecting the "Invalid secret key" error message from the server when the Send Files to Support fails.
  • Fixed issues when loading layouts with dock windows with a position that is not visible based on the user's number of monitors and their sizes.
  • Add docking context menu entries to the Alerts window that were created from the Multi-Strategy window.
  • Fixed issue that can cause a new window not to load or can cause an exception "Cannot access a disposed object"". This could occur when opening new windows after a user has closed all dock windows and currently has "Open in dock window" enabled in the Layout tab of the Options window.
  • Modified the Actions form to disable the Show Alert Window option when called from a docked Alert window.
  •  Increased filter name length and added logic to truncate and append an ellipse to alert or filter descriptions that exceed the allowable length in the Config window.
