option for symbol linking

Postby Kaos » 02 Oct 2008

Currently I have a few different workspaces - all using EOD metastock data

01_SPI200.wsp (has 3 charts of the SPI 200 futures - symbol linked)
02_Nikkei.wsp (has 3 charts of the SGX Nikkei futures - symbol linked)
03_SP500.wsp (has 3 charts of the SP 500 futures - symbol linked)

If I symbol link all 3 with the red colour - the problem is the symbol linking is program wide

Eg If I open the Nikkei (symbol linked red) Then open the Sp500 (symbol linked red) ---> all my SP500 charts change to Nikkei charts

I know there are 14 different colours but I have more than 20+ stocks and futures I look at.

Is it possible to get an option built in where I can select symbol linking to either program wide (as it is currently) or workspace specific)

Regards,
Paul

Hi Paul,

We are planning to resolve the problem that you are facing by adding more colours for symbol linking. However, I don't have an ETA for this feature.

Best regards.

Hi Marina,

Thanks for looking into this. I understand if it the types of symbol linking I mentioned would be too hard to implement.

When it comes design time, maybe in addition to more colours -

could it be possible to type in positive integers rather than select a colour. That way it would easier to see - rather than trying to tell the difference visually between "Sand Yellow" or "Lemon" or "Paste Yellow"

Regards,
Paul
