When a symbol is already shown on the screen inside a document, you can display the symbol in a different document type. For example, you can open a market depth document for each symbol displayed in a price page.

To open a symbol with the default document type

▪       In a price page, chart, market depth, time and sales, options matrix, quick quote or watch list document, double-click on the symbol.

Note             In market depth and quick quote documents, you can double-click anywhere in the document. In price pages, watch lists, options matrix and time and sales documents, you have to double-click on the row of the symbol that you want to open. In charts, you have to double-click the time series (bars, candles or other data points) of the symbol.

▪       A new document is opened for the symbol. The document is formatted with the default template.

To open a symbol with other document types

Note             In market depth and quick quote documents, you can right-click anywhere in the document. In price pages, watch lists, options matrix and time and sales documents, you have to right-click on the row of the symbol that you want to open. In charts, you have to right-click the time series (bars, candles or other data points) of the symbol.

▪       A new document is opened for the symbol. The document is formatted with the default template.

Note             From price pages, watch lists, options matrices and the price page view of time and sales documents, you can open separate documents for more than one symbol simultaneously. Select the symbols by clicking on them while keeping the Ctrl key pressed (see Selecting Rows or Columns of a Price Page), then follow the steps above.
If you select several symbols, and open a new price page, watch list or time and sales document for them, by default all symbols will be combined in one document. If you keep the Ctrl key pressed while choosing the document type, each symbol will be opened in a separate document.
If you open a new chart document while selecting several symbols, holding the Ctrl key will open overlaid symbols in one chart pane. To open every symbol in its own chart pane, hold both the Ctrl + Shift while choosing the document type Charts.
