Hi - I realize you guys aren't adding a lot of new features to DTNIQ these days, but here's one that would be very handy and probably not all that difficult to fit into the existing code.

* T&S windows allow one to set features for an individual window without requiring those features to be the global default. Ex: 'Load data options', select 3 days of data for window #1 and maybe 4 days data to be downloaded for window #2. While you can make a setting the global default, you don't have to do so for a window, if you want a different feature for just that window.

* Options chains, otoh, don't all for this. Ex: I might run an OptChain for 'AAPL' and select current month, in/out of the money 3 deep. Works fine, maybe run all day this way. However, if I want to pull up a 2nd OptChain and run a full set of options(all months, no filters) for say, 'MSFT', I can only do this if I make -these- settings the default.

* I might want to run in some sort of mixed mode: 'AAPL' very selctive, 'MSFT' showing all months/strikes, 'CSCO' showing two near months, at/near the money options, etc. As of now, I can't do that. All OptChains need to have the same filter criteria, because of the need to make a set of features the default to have them go into effect.
