METASTOCK FOR WINDOWS
In MetaStock for DOS, many users create macros to quickly switch from one chart to the other. Some users create a macro to switch between Smart Charts, while others use macros to apply a template when switching between charts. No macros are necessary to do this in MetaStock for Windows (version 5.1). This can be done automatically in MetaStock by clicking on the Next Security command, located on the Chart toolbar.
There are, however, a few options that change the way this feature works, including a new option that has been added to MetaStock 5.1 for Windows. These settings are changed by choosing options from the Tools menu and then going to the Chart Options page. You can see these settings in Figure 1, under the Change Security group.
