Profiles

Desktop profiles are a convenient way of organizing different layout configurations of ActTrader. You can use one of the default system profiles offered by your broker, or you can configure and save your own desktop profile.

An application profile includes a list of workspaces, windows (their size, columns, and positioning on the screen) and application settings, including the "skin" settings.

 

Selecting a Profile

 

To select a profile go to the Home tab of the FXVoyager and click the Desktop Profile button.You will see a list of profiles. Default profiles are shown under the System heading. User-created profiles are shown under the Custom heading. Select the desired profile from the list to change to that profile. The currently active profile is checked.
