About Chart Layouts

Chart layouts are helpful for loading a custom layout or adding a new chart without having to manually apply each setting you've used before. 


Chart layouts will save the following for each chart widget: 

Chart layouts do not save:


Read on below to learn specifics of chart layouts, or start with the video as a guide of overall layout functions.



How to Save Chart Layouts

  1. From the top toolbar of the chart, click the blue Save icon (you may need to scroll to the right on your chart until you see the Save icon). If you have the chart widget selected, you can also save the chart layout by pressing Ctrl+S.
  2. A new window will pop up for you to name the layout.


IMPORTANT: You cannot save any layout name starting with WT or DTD, and you cannot save over the default layouts. Any changes made to them will not save.

If you would like to make a change to a default layout, use the Make a copy function first and then save your copy of the layout under a different name.

 


How to Rename and Copy Chart Layouts

  • Rename: If you already have a current layout selected, you can use this function to rename the layout.
  • Make a copy: If you already have a chart layout selected, you can use this function to duplicate a copy of the layout with an option to rename it.



How to Load Chart Layouts

Use this function to load any public or custom layouts by clicking the down arrow that appears to the right of the Save button on top of the chart widget, as in the image below.




Shortcut to Load layout: "." (the period key)




Error Can't create or edit public layout


If you get the error message: "Can't create or edit public layout," please click on the layout and select the "Make a copy" function.

Then, rename your copied layout to your preference without "WT" or "DTD" in the title.
