Multicharts set up with Interactive Brokers Linked Accounts

I have 2 accounts with IB and have them linked. This is not the same as a financial advisor or friends and family account. It consists of one login ID which then allows trading of the 2 accounts based on a drop down window in TWS. I can trade directly from MC and am able to select which account to trade. I run into issues, however, with the Order and Position Tracker. I can see all of my orders under the Orders tab and I know that MC is receiving data through the API from IB because the filled price is visible on the screen for opened and closed orders. The Profile, Account, Source, etc are working properly in this Orders tab. The Logs tab also works. Unfortunately, no other tab works at all. I would like to be able to see my open positions, but the profile drop down window only has all and does not have IB as a possibility. Same with Account and Instrument. Again, I know that there is 2 way communication because trades executed through MC appear in TWS and the filled amount is passed back to MC and visible in the Orders tab.

Perhaps I just need to tweak my configuration, but I have tried many options. If anyone has had this issue with a Linked Account, please let me know.
