Can anybody tell me if there is a way to automate this for each ladder. I find it very annoying I have to press return on each ladder in order to centre the last traded price when in-running

Auto re-centering is dangerous in a pre-off market, IR it will be 10 times worse, you'll continually be placing bets at the wrong price as it re-centres just as you click the mouse so i'd be very cautious before doing this

Have you tried using the inplay trader window? https://www.betangel.com/user-guide/bet ... rader.html

Auto-centring is for watching a market only, not for trading. It's bad enough when the market goes against you, you certainly don't want your own software going against you!

A single button to centre all ladders would be nice.

The return key to centre all ladders is the only thing I use the keyboard for when trading and I'd like a mouse option too.

Plenty of room for a button in the little row where the "Reorder the selections", "Display the enhanced ladder" etc. buttons are located.

Also, when using the "Reorder the selections..." (123) button, if a ladder changes to a different selection the price is automatically re-centred on those ladders (e.g. when say the 1st and 2nd favs swap round), but if a ladder selection does not change the (e.g. 3rd fav still the 3rd fav when the button is pressed) then that ladder isn't re-centred. Could the 123 button also centre all ladders irrespective of selection change (or have an option in the settings to behave in that way)?

Small things I know, but every little helps!
