I started working with the CQG demo tonight with the goal of moving to QTrader initially. One thing I can't figure out is how do you display the option chain for futures contracts and build orders from it? See the attached pic for what I'm looking at on ToS, I'm trying to replicate something similar. In ToS I ctrl-click on bid or ask in calls or puts to get option legs added to an order.

If it is an outright option, open the option chain , right click on the strike select place order

Picture attached. If it is an option spread, you will need to use the strategy builder like shown below as well.
