Using Pop-out Windows

For info on Detached Windows in Version 11 click here.

pop-out windows, also commonly referred to as floating windows, gives the user the ability to detach a window and move it outside of the main framework of the esignal program.  

each window should have a pop-out icon located on the title bar. the popout icon is blue with tiny arrows to indicate whether the pop-out feature has been activated. 

once you activate the popout feature, you can drag the window outside of esignal by grabbing the thin blue title bar. you use these icons to pop-out or pop back in ( also called floating and redocking ).

once you pop-out a window, it will then appear as a seperate window in the windows taskbar*. you can position this pop-out window just about anywhere, even across multiple monitors. when you settle on a position, don't forget to save the page, window or layout so that position is retained the next time you start esignal.

if you ever happen to lose a pop-out window on your desktop, simply go the main esignal menu bar, hit windows, then redock floating windows.

possible uses of pop-out or floating windows
introduced in version 7.3, pop-out windows have quickly become one of the most popular features of esignal. here are just a few ways customers are utlizing this handy functionality:

* more easily take advantage of multiple monitor set-ups by popping out various windows and using all of your workspace more efficiently.

* use a pop-out window and the "always on top" command together to overlay an esignal chart on top of your brokers trading application. the esignal chart will always remain in the foreground, regardless of where you navigate. to activate "always on top," first pop the window out, then click the now visible thumbtack icon. press this same icon to turn this back off.

* pop-out your news ticker so you can see scrolling news while you work in excel* or word* or browse the internet.
