Using this option on the Option Chain, enables the Option Chain to be taken out of the main program window. It then can be moved and resized anywhere on the screen. When the Page is saved the window(s) that are outside of the main program will be saved in those locations as well.
This is what will be shown when a window is currently being 'Floated' outside of the main program window. To return the window 'Floating' outside of the main window click on the Dock button.
The Option Chain window can be linked with other windows within the application by left clicking on the Group button in the upper right hand corner of the window. This allows the Option Chain to sync with other windows within the application, for example if a symbol is changed on a chart the Option Chain will adjust to the same symbol if those windows are linked together.
