      From our website. The menu at the very top. Click on the Help menu item and select “Frequently Asked Question”. Then enter the term “download” in the search box. This is the result of that search: https://www.hahn-tech.com/ans/?search=download
      From that list of results. Read the details for the question titled: “How to download and import STUDY.ts files into Thinkorswim”

    Hey Pete, For some reason when I load the SLM ribbon study on my chart, the background turns lime green, I know it has something to do with the -1 and 1 on the color bars but for the life of me cant fix it. I can get my chart background back to black if I change the 1 to -1 on the green bar but then it doesn’t show the 1 down on the lower graph, therefore would not be able to use the scan to watchlist. Please help as Im as stuck with this. Thank You, Phil

      Hey Pete, Just wanted to let you know that I fixed the background problem on my chart. I had to remove the last line you added for background color, when applying to chart. Then added it back when using for watchlist. Might be useful if any one else runs into the same problem. Thanks again for all you do. Phil
