Importing & Exporting Layers

Author: Optuma Team Last updated: Aug 17, 2021 17:51


Similar to Page Layouts, exporting layers allows you to save the contents of a layer for use on future charts. The significant difference between Exported Layers and Page Layouts is that when you import a layer onto a chart, any existing work you have on the chart remains whereas a Page Layout will replace it.

Exporting a Layer

To export a layer, add all the tools and indicators that you want the layer to include. Once created, right-click on the word Layer in the Structures Panel and then from the Actions menu select Export Layer.


In the Window that displays, enter a name for the Layer and click Save.

*Note: The Optuma folder will live in your Documents folder unless you have moved it to OneDrive or Google Drive, etc.* The Layer will be exported, ready for use on future charts.

Importing a Layer

To import a layer onto an existing chart, in the Structure Panel, right-click the View item and select Import Layer from the Actions menu.


A list of exported layers will be displayed, double left-click the one you want to import. The new layer will be added to the existing chart.


The indicators will be added to the chart, without removing any previous analysis you had on the chart.
