In the attached tick chart I have a custom study "US VWAP Overlay" which I believe I got from a friend (I don't see it anywhere in the choice of custom studies in Sierra Chart). I would like to use this same study in a different footprint chart - is there a way to copy this study to another chart?

Please see attachment.

The "US VWAP Overlay" is a Study/Price Overlay study. It just has a name entered that shows it as the name you see.

If you look at the Inputs for the study, it is overlaying chart #33 study #1. You did not include that chart, so we do not know what particular study is being overlaid.

Refer to the following for more information on the Study/Price Overlay study:

chart number 33 must be a chart in a file that I do not have open when I am using this tick chart. So is it referring to a chart that I have saved somewhere but is not open at the same time? Do I need to find this chart in order to replicate this study overlay?

If the chart actually exists, then you can just use the Study/Price Overlay as it exists on the one chart to the other chart. You can do this by adding the Study/Price Overlay to that new chart and then copying all the Inputs.

Or, you can select the study in the Study Selection window (Analysis >> Studies) and then select that specific study in the list of studies on the right, then enter a name in the Name section for the Study Collection at the bottom right and then select the Save Single button. You would then go to your other chart and add the Study Collection that you just saved. This will add that one Study/Price Overlay study as it was setup on the other chart.

Refer to the following information for Study Collections (note the section on how to save a study collection so you get prompted whether to remove other studies or not):
Study Collections


To find chart #33, you would need to select the menu item for CW and then you can find the chart in that list. It has to be present if you are getting the data from the Study/Price Overlay. But it could be hidden.
