Part 2 of this series builds on the work of part 1. It demonstrates how to configure and save chart layouts in the Flexible Grid screen of the Thinkorswim platform. To save time, this video uses the custom style created in part 1 for configuring each chart pane.
In part 1 you learn how to configure and save chart settings. Part 1 also demonstrates how to save chart settings as a custom style. This custom style is then used to quickly configure additional charts. You will also learn how to customize and save the chart grid layout.
If you are already familiar with these tools, you can skip straight to part 3 in the series. Part 3 demonstrates how to create duplicate windows in the Thinkorswim platform. These windows are then assigned to display your saved custom chart layouts. Four duplicate windows are created. You are then shown how to distribute them across four separate monitors. You then learn how to save that as a workspace layout. This workspace remembers where each window is placed. The saved workspace can be reloaded at any time. Multiple workspaces can be saved.
This video references another tutorial which demonstrates how to use a custom study to display the name of each saved chart layout. The custom study is provided free of charge. You can watch that tutorial video here: Thinkorswim Display Name of Saved Chart
