Most changes are applied automatically, but complex settings require confirmation for proper implementation.

Language (beta) — 3rd Dimension supports 17 languages. In case of errors or inaccuracies in translation, any user can make changes to the text. Read the manual on how to make changes in the selected language.

Default symbol — set up a default trading symbol that will open in all trading panels automatically.

Default account — specify the trading account that should be set as the default option in all trading panels.

Data latency limit, ms — set a threshold value, and when it's reached, a message about market data delays will be displayed in the trading panels. For example, if you set a 100 ms limit, you will see the message on the chart.

This message appears when there's a delay in data within a specific time interval. The cause may stem from a slow Internet connection or issues on the data provider's end.

Whether the data delay occurs on a Bybit server, Kucoin, OKX, Binance, or during transmission to the client, we make efforts to identify instances where server-side timestamps start to lag.

Additionally, you have the option to mitigate data load by closing panels, disabling volume tools, or closing unnecessary tabs in your browser (if it's active while using the platform).

Autosave settings (every 5 minutes) — 3rd Dimension will save all changes of application settings in the "Settings" folder and overwrite them every 5 minutes while the application is active. It also saves on application close.

Abbreviate volume & ticks — this option displays the volume values or the number of ticks in a simplified form (1K = 1 000; 10K = 10 000 etc.)

Abbreviate crypto prices — this option displays the abbreviated values of cryptocurrency prices that have a large number of zeros.

Unload inactive workspaces. If this option is enabled, previously created workspaces will not receive market data updates, reducing memory usage.

Hide part of an account name. Specify the number of characters that will be hidden for your trading account name and ID. This option is used to keep the account private.

Beta Version. When this option is activated, you will receive updates to new functionality that is still in testing. We strive for our traders to use fully working functionality, but for this, we need the help of each user. Therefore, we ask as many people as possible to use the Beta version to inform us about possible bugs that eluded our testers.

Control Center

Control center is the starting point of the platform and acts as both a launcher and informer. To optimize space, we've added the option to show/hide certain controls.


Sounds can be enabled or disabled for specific actions, providing additional interaction with users even when they're not in front of their PC.

Enable sounds — activates or disables all of the application sounds globally

The group of actions in 3rd Dimension, when the sound should be played consists of the most vital situations in application usage. This list is not final and can be extended or changed later. Each option has a set of controls:
