To open this plug-in, simply click on CONTROL+N (The notes plug-in will open on a date that corresponds to the currently selected date in the chart), or right click on a chart, select "Tools" then "Notes".
Notes data are stored in a custom database "_notes". You can display all notes for the selected symbol or for all symbols in a watchlist using the Database Data plug-in (Tools -> Database Data). You can also access them using the QuantShare language or .Net scripts.
Symbol Filters are set of conditions used to select specific symbols. These filters are used by all plug-ins, including the screener, watchlist, simulator, composite...
The Symbol View plug-in displays the content (symbols) of these symbol filters. It also allows you to add, update, remove and create new symbols list very easily.
Charts can now be linked using colors. You simply assign the same symbol/timeframe index/color to a chart. Charts with the same index color will then be linked by symbol or/and timeframe.
Next to the chart scroll-bar (on the bottom of a chart), click on "S" to select a symbol link and on "T" to select a timeframe link.
There are 56 dash styles you can use.
