I have a Spreadsheet Study. Some values are shown on an intraday range bar chart via Text (Large) Display Study.

Unfortunately, when I put this Spreadsheet Study onto another instrument the Text Studies show the values on the first chart on which I created the Spreadsheet. I must set all Text references one-by-one to the new instrument's chart window. Because of this if I modify the Spreadsheet Study I must keep the other instrument specific ones in sync with the original.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there some way to that studies do follow the current chart for references?

In the next version you will see the following 2 studies:

Text Display for Study from Chart (Can reference a study from any chart)
Text Display for Study (Only references a study from the chart the study is on. This is what you will want to use.)

Thank you! You are the best :)

However, I don't know of other study which might benefit from this feature but probably adding a virtual <current chart> element to the first parameter of the Study And Subgraph To Display trio which then always gets resolved to the current chart's number could help in general. Just my two cents.

Anyway, the next version will help me out perfectly! Thanks again!
