Linking and unlinking windows

Linking windows

The symbol link feature allows you to enter a symbol in one window, and have the change reflected across all windows simultaneously.

For example, if you link your level 1 and order entry windows together and look up and select a symbol in the level 1 window, the same symbol will be populated in the order entry window automatically.

To link one or more windows:

  1. Open the first window you want to link and click Symbol link in the top right corner. Then select a link colour.



  2. Open the second window you want to link and choose the same link colour. Now, when you select a symbol in one window, the change will be reflected across all linked windows with the same colour.

    You can link multiple windows if you wish.



Unlinking windows

To unlink a window:

  1. Open the first window you want to unlink and click Symbol link in the top right corner.
  2. Then select Unlink from the drop-down menu.



  3. Repeat this process for the second window you want to unlink.
