Manage multiple objects

On MetaTrader4 (MT4) / MetaTrader5 (MT5), you can edit the object settings by right-clicking an object on a chart and selecting "Properties". If there are multiple objects on a chart, use the object list to easily change settings for multiple objects simultaneously. All objects displayed on the chart such as vertical and horizontal lines and trendlines will show up on the object list.

Here we will look at how to change object properties in MT4/MT5.

Switch between MT4/MT5 tabs to check the steps for each.
