Problem with new TWS ver. 781.6

  1. Just downloaded new version. Now, when I hit hotkey for stop or limit orders a ticket window comes up, instead of an order line like before. I don't want that, I just want an order line. Can this be corrected? Or changed, it's sucks big time.

    Just checked it, same here. Do not like it too.

    After a second test, I'm not so sure, there is anything wrong. Did you test it on a market data line with actual data displayed? Or an empty line?
  3. This is really weird. I went to my other computer with the previous version, and it's now doing the same thing. Also, perhaps unrelated, TWS does not open maximized, it opens minimized, so that you have to right click on the task bar icon and select maximize to get it to appear on the desktop. I don't know about you guys, but I can't fill out an order ticket fast enough to trade quickly. I even tried downloading older versions from Still get the same action.
  4. yeah it's messed up. I haven't changed anything and it was working fine Friday. Same thing, hotkey now gives me ticket. They'll get it fixed. I wouldn't bother trying to undownload anything, that's not the problem. They just screwed up somewhere this weekend.
  5. Mine's working normally, but I didn't get the new version.

    Bundlemaker, you know if you highlight a ticker line, then click the Order icon, most of the information is entered automatically.
  6. you guys are clowns.

    wait until the markets open tomorrow morning and then everything will be as it was...

    that's the way it always behaves on the weekends...
  7. yeah I guess so. it's ok now. Never checked it on the weekend because it is always down on the weekend. Oh, speaking of clowns, the market opens in the afternoon. 5pm something on Sundays. Unless you are trading one of the old fashioned hand operated markets. I think then yes, they still open in the morning for old times sake.

    The reason it acts like this on weekends is because TWS doesn't have any bid/ask data.
