Pattern Recognition not working

I use Heikin Ashi chart type and enabled a few patterns. TOS used to automatically identify the patterns if exists when I move mouse over any bar. But it stopped working lately, may be from the second week of August. I could not get it working, tried reinstalling and tried a different version of TOS also.

Hope someone will have an answer for me. Thank you very much for your help
 
Maybe because you're using Heikin-Ashi chart, switch back to the regular candlestick chart, and you should be able to see your selected patterns.

I have been trying to make TOS Patterns feature to automatically plot or display patterns on the chart for the past weeks, but I have been unsuccessful. The patterns are not showing up even with "Show Patterns" checked, added all patterns, sensitivity set to strong, and display set to always.

Is anyone got the TOS Patterns feature working? Can you point or assist me with why the patterns aren't being recognized?

Thank you in advance for your feedback and assist.

It depends on the type of pattern. Candlestick patterns work just fine but not other patterns such as ascending wedge patterns. I hope that helps.

Just tried with candle settings to see if Heikin-Ashi do not qualify. It didn't matter. Yes, the candlestick patterns work very well, I appreciate much your reply. It is the pattern line Flag and triangles that I am exploring to show automatically. I plan to chat with TOS support tomorrow morning to see why the pattern recognition isn't working. I will update this thread after.

Chatted with support this morning. And they said:

1) Classic Patterns do not respond or work with Heikin Ashi candle style. We tried with Classic candle on Ascending Triangle and Flags with success.
2) Not all tickers work or have classic patterns.

This will be a challenging task coding favorite classic patterns.
