Drawings are chart specific and not symbol specific?

I have a chartbook with 6 charts which I follow (using Tile as Grid functionality). Once I see something interesting, I want to switch to another chartbook to see this symbol
in more detail on multiple timeframes at the same time (let's say 4 charts but then of the same symbol; different timeframes). But the drawings made on the overview chartbook are not visible in this chartbook so I don't see trendlines and price points added.

Is it possible to show drawings symbol specific? Or is there some other way? It also does not work within the same chartbook. If I draw in chart A and I change chart B into the same symbol the drawings are not visible.

The link below will not help for this use case because I manually type in the symbol of interest in the multiple times overview chartbook so the [chart number] will be different each time.

Thanks,

The only method for displaying drawings in other charts (and chartbooks) is by using the option you reference:

If this does not work for you, then there is not another method to do this.

But, from what you are stating, it sounds like this should work, although it would require that you have the drawings copied from all charts to all other charts. That way, it would not matter where you change the symbol, as the charts with the same symbol will display all the drawings from all the other charts with that same symbol.

Also, keep in mind that as long as the option for Show Chart Drawings from Different Symbols is NOT enabled, then when you change symbols you will not see the drawings that were put on for other symbols.
