How to Change the Footprint Spacer Character

By default the character that acts as a spacer between the values shown on the Bid Ask and Imbalance Footprint is "x" as shown below. 


It can be changed to any character by following these instructions. 


  1. Search your computer for the file cqg.ini and open it.
  2. Once the file is open, search or find the line FootprintSpacer=:x
  3. Replace line with FootprintSpacer=| or any other cha
  4. You need to remove : and any other space. Just place the new character you want to use. 

So in the example below, removes the : and X and just added | which is the pipe symbol. Here was the complete line.​​
