I have some ideas which may help to you..

- Use Chartbooks (settings of multiple chart windows) and StudyCollections (studies/indicator setting for one chart). You may then change between them whenever you wish.

- You can quickly change study parameters this way: Chart Studies - Sierra Chart

- You may find interesting the Study/Price Overlay study to copy indicator lines to another chart.

- You can save your current settings as default for a study if you check Save these settings as the default on the very bottom of the study settings dialog window.

- You can set time zone in Global Settings / Data/Trade service settings, as well on a per chart basis in Chart Settings / Advanced settings tab. Also you can set the time zone of a specific market in Global Settings / Symbol Settings, find the symbol then Intraday tab. When Apply Intraday settings on intraday charts is checked (lower left) this will overwrite your other settings.. if not else in a manner of what part of a day is shown on the chart.

I hope these help

Support probably hates me by now but I'd add options tables. Options are such an integral part of trading it really precludes Sierra Charts from being a top trading platform.
