Essentially every time you exit the platform you will be prompted to save any changes you have made.
For precautionary reasons, I would suggest to head over to 1. File > Save All before you intend to shut down Sierra Chart.
This will create a Chartbook for you. All chart windows, Time and Sales windows, Market Depth windows, Trade windows for charts, Trade DOM windows, and Spreadsheets used by the Spreadsheet studies are contained within Chartbooks. A Chartbook is not a window. It is a collection of multiple windows.
A Chartbook is like a desktop/layout/workspace for Sierra Chart. Multiple charts and other windows can be contained within a single Chartbook. When a chart or Trade DOM window is opened, it is added to a Chartbook. A new Chartbook named chartbook#.cht is created if one is not already open when a chart or Trade DOM is opened.
If you have multiple contracts you trade, you can save each one under a different chartbook for organizational purposes. Each DOM, time & sales, chart, or spreadsheet associated with that contract can all be saved under one universal chartbook for that specific contract.
There’s a ton of customization options that can be utilized on Sierra Chart with some creative thinking.
