Adding custom cells in a chart grid.

TOS is very flexible in how your charts can be displayed and organized.

You may have up to an 8×4 grid setup of chart cells in a grid. 

A single cell chart grid is the default grid that comes up in TOS. Just the normal chart view. It is when more than one cell is added to the grid, that it becomes known as a Chart Grid. 

Whether you import a shared link or create a chart from scratch, you may customize your grid using the Chart Grid menu in the upper right corner of the TOS window. 

Step 1

Use the matrix of boxes to choose a grid layout. In this case, 3 boxes across are highlighted which will give use 3 chart cells next to one another.

When you a ticker symbol to a blank cell, it will display the default chart saved in TOS.
