Creating a MetaStock Layout     
 
It takes a great deal of time to construct a MetaStock chart or several charts precisely containing the data you want displayed and how you want it displayed.  One way to recall your exact data display in the future with minimal effort is a MetaStock Layout.
 

In MetaStock, click on the (open) icon.  At the bottom of the "Open" dialog window that appears, make sure that "Smart Charts" is displayed in the "Files of type:" section.

 

If you used the default settings for your installation, browse to the "C:\MasterDATA\CSVPlug-in\Data\PxData" directory.

 
Select and open the symbol ".SPX".
 

Using the "Apply a Template To an Open Chart" method of applying a template discussed on the previous page, apply the following three templates (please make sure "Replace existing chart" is unchecked):

  1. ADLine.mwt
  2. McClellanOsc-Sum.mwt
  3. NewHighLow.mwt
 

You now should have four charts open.  The original chart plus the three new charts displaying the above templates.  Close the original chart.  You now should have three charts open.

 

Click on "File", then "New", and then "Layout".

 

In the "Layout" dialog window that appears, click on the "Add All" button.  Click on the "OK" button.

 

While you have created a Layout, it is only in memory.  Save the new Layout by clicking on "File", then "Save As".  In the "Save As" dialog window browse to the directory you wish to save your Layouts.  We suggest saving your own Layouts in a separate directory.  For Layouts created using the MetaStockCSV Plug-in formulas you may wish to save them somewhere in the "C:\MasterDATA directory.

Whenever you wish to use the three charts you just created, you can recreate them or simply open this new Layout.

 

Click on "Tools" and then "Options".  In the "Application Properties" dialog window that appears, click on the "Chart Options" tab.   In the "Change Security" section, if you select "Use chart as template" and check "Change all charts in a layout" you can cycle through MasterDATA's compiled indexes and ETFs.  All three charts will reflect the newly cycled symbol.

 

Additionally, when you create layouts that you will use frequently, consider adding a custom "Toolbar button" for those layouts.  Follow the same steps as previously described on the "Apply a Template To a Chart" page under the "Create a Custom Toolbar Button To Apply a Template" section.
