On a chart with two data series of same instrument, llinked to each other, using exchange time, it is not possible to change to a different instrument from a different exchange/Time zone. The error message says: 
"Instruments from different time zones cannont be mixed. Please select local Time Zone on all instruments"
However, it is not possible to select local Time Zone on all instruments as requested.
This is related to issue MC-227 and issue MC-747 and is present in MultiCharts Standard Edition up to 8.5.

Steps to reproduce this issue
  1. Create new chart window
  2. add instrument @ES# from IqFeed (say 30 min bars), set to Exchange Time
  3. add instrument @ES# from IqFeed (say Daily bars), set to Exchange Time
  4. In Chart Window Link the two instruments together
  5. Format instruments and change instrument #1 to @NQ# from Iqfeed and verify that it works as expected.
  6. Format instruments and change instrument to either @NG# or @QM# or AAPL from Iqfeed. Verify that it doesn't work and you get an error message.
  7. Now try to selectthe time zone to Local Time. Verify that it is impossible to do this. No matter what you try.
  8. Verify that the only way to change the instrument is to remove everything and start from scratch or create a new chart window.
