Slimmer side tab (side order trade entry tab on charts)

Hey all, quick question regarding the side order entry tab on charts. Is there anyway to set it to the slim side buttons for market orders and cancel? I’ve attached a screenshot from the Internet that has what I’m looking for. Thanks!

Hi @Icbto09,

Thank you for your question!

It seems the picture you have is from an older version of Optimus Flow, since then we’ve added quite a bit of new features and functionality to the platform.

That being said, we still have a similar-looking “Slim Mode” for your side order entry tab for your charts/DOM.

Simply right click the side panel of your chart > Check Slim Mode

It may look something like this by default:

In my opinion, I would next go to settings > Order entry. Within order entry settings, I would recommend unchecking show additional order parameters and also enable No Labels. Please also delete the text within the OE qty buttons text box.

Once done, your new sidebar should look something like this:

I hope this helps!

Thanks for your input, Jake.

This is currently how I have my platform. In slim mode with the labels removed. I started to come to the conclusion that this was from an older version, but I just thought I’d ask in case I was missing a setting option somewhere.

Thank you!


You’re welcome! Thank you again for your question.
