QCharts - SingleQuote Window
This article provides an overview for using the SingleQuote Window in QCharts.
Opening a SingleQuote Window
There are three ways a user can open a SingleQuote Window. The first way is shown below by selecting file from the main menu and clicking new, SingleQuote.
The second way to open a SingleQuote Window is by right clicking a symbol on a quote sheet and selecting New=>SingleQuote.
The last way is by using the shortcut button at the top of QCharts
Changing a Symbol
To change the symbol that is displayed in the SingleQuote Window, click on the symbol box in the upper left hand corner of QCharts, type the symbol and then press the 'Enter' key.
The Symbol Synchronize Button
The symbol synchronize button is located in the top right hand corner of the SingleQuote Window. This feature allows you to link the SingleQuote Window to your quote sheet and all other windows in your Workspace. Once the symbol link has been activated, a symbol change in one window will be automatically reflected in all of windows that have been linked.
A gray symbol button means the chart window is not linked and will only change when it is the active window.
A green symbol button means the Chart Window is linked to all the windows in your Workspace.
A red symbol button means the Chart Window is locked on the symbol that is on the chart. Meaning they symbol can not be changed.
A blue symbol button means the chart window is linked to call options in an Options Montage Window.
A yellow symbol button means the chart window is linked to put options in an Option Montage Window.
(Note: The Option Montage Window requires a QCharts Plus subscription)

What is the purpose of "Leading Zeros?

This option will allow you to save a SingleQuote window in terms of Color, Font, and Data Fields so that this layout can be applied to new SingleQuote Windows.
