After looking for more than 40 minutes I have a simple question: How can I print/see the number of shares, that a strategy buys/sells short in the chart of an individual stock?

It's illustrated in the Wealth-Lab User Guide, chapter Strategy Window > Strategy Window Views > Chart and Trades.

Does this mean, that I am only able to see the position size, if I hover the mouse over the trade triangle? It's a difference between WL4?

In general, yes - to declutter the interface. In strategy code, however, is still possible to annotate bars with any text, including the number of shares.
