How can we improve VectorVest 7?

Save Graph MultiView Layouts

Every time I open VV 7, I have to redo the layout for the timing graphs. I set up 4 graphs in different timeframes. It would be nice if these settings were saved when it shut down. Unless I am missing something, there is nowhere to save a grid which contains multiple graphs in one screen layout such as this (some broker trading platforms allow for this and it would be nice if VV 7 did as well).

    Unless there is a method of saving the layout, the current multi screen layout is pointless due to the time required to reconstruct the graphs. This suggestion seems to have first raised its head 8 years ago and with only 45 votes currently, hopefully my grandchildren might eventually reap the benefit

    And I wonder? When will we know when an Idea would be implemented or not. How many votes do they need to make it happen. This particular one is from Jan 09, 2010!!!

    If you are not going to implemented then erase it or notify you will not do it.

    Fix the program to store / save all four graphs per page. So, everyday
    I am not wasting an hour recreating the same graphs into the four quadrants a couple times a day. (I have to reboot if computer freezes up or I loose data feed).

    I agreee with the other comments. Saving any graph layout with items you are following helps and simplifies daily usage. I am particularly interested in an interday performance graph of major indices, but this would be useful for quickly following performance of any item either within a session or over a longer period of time.

    Agree with all the comments above. The first thing I have to do every morning is manually set up my graph (I like split screen with 5 minute and daily) and manually input the stocks I follow. I know I could use a watchlist to make the group but I am an active trader and like to have the tabs easily available for the stocks I am following verses having to scroll down the list as required when graphs are created from a watchlist. This doesn't seem like a hard setting to incorporate and would make life so much better. As an additional and related tool please consider adding the option of a sidebar (like your graph layout) that would create a real time watchlist for the stocks we currently have open in our graphs. I think Wardon TC2000 has somethng similar and would be a great addition. Currently, not only do I have to set up my graphs daily but I also have to toggle back and forth to monitor price movement and view graphs. Thank you!!!

    PLEASE impliment this feature for us two or greater screen users that have to remake up our regular graph screens everytme we start. Come'on guys, this is a no brainer in Windows.

    I fully agree with the two previous comments, both of which were posted over half a year ago!! Why isn't some action being taken?

    This seems like such an obvious feature that I was shocked (and dismayed) when I discovered it didn't exist. Much like the watchlists, graphs need to have a save option for multi-chart display, and multi-tab display. Each of these should retain their specified settings, which would include time frames and chart styles (preferences).

    You would think the ability to save multiview graph layouts would be something Vector Vest programmers would have added automatically since the save function is like programming 101. Without a save function, the charting multiview layout is totally useless, and maddening.
