I should be fine to keep moving then. I only have several intensive indicators for my main single chart, on main workspace, and all other windows will be plain with EMA (plus volume for one or two) only. So seems like no sweat. Using two monitors and only one's windows will be switching.
No reason to go back to TS then. Can buy my NT full license soon if it handles it all so well.
It is now 2014 and WindowTabs still doesn't allow you to save and reload your arrangement of tabbed windows, so you have to set it up again each time you start NinjaTrader. Feature coming soon, maybe ...
I also tried Window Docking Station (by Hoopoe ProGroup, found on cnet). It has a feature to load an arrangement of windows, however I have not been able to get this part of it to work properly. Emailed their support and no response.
The following user says Thank You to cbrad for this post:
I use SecondCopy it's an amazing backup tool... use it to back up individual versions of my code, or make backups of ninjatrader or other important things to multiple locations (including USB flash drive) when the files change. I never really found another backup tool quite like it.
Don't know if it's "just me" or if this has some basis in reality but it always seemed to me that the number 1 way I could reduce memory usage / increase performance on NT was to not use Range Charts (I have many charts open usually) I don't really have any problems with other chart types
