Layouts

To work with the widgets in Web Trader, you need to open them in a workspace (a separate tab). A workspace can contain one or more widgets, and several workspaces can be opened at the same time. The way multiple widgets are organized in a single workspace is called a layout.

If you wish to copy a layout to make minor adjustments and save it under a different name, click the hamburger menu button next to the layout name and click Duplicate.
