data from tools into spreadsheet

I'm new to the whole spreadsheet aspect of charting. Have been reading the Sierra Chart manual without much success to determine how to fill cells from the chart to the spreadsheet.

Is it possible to get the points of a drawing to appear in cells on a spreadsheet?

e.g. swing highs and swing lows drawn with the zig zag tool?

I am quite certain that exact exercise was covered in a Sierra Chart webinar on futures.io (formerly BMT) but I can't recall which one specifically, you can check them in the futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar section.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Great, thanks. I did scan through one of the hour-long videos but it didn't touch on what I was looking for. I will keep doing so as time permits. If anyone is able to point me to a specific video I'd appreciate it.

The short answer is 'no'.

Outputs from studies appear in columns AA and above, and formulas in columns K-Z can plot to the chart. Drawings are not included in spreadsheet functionality.

Not to contradict @tomgilb, but Anthony specifically demonstrated getting ZigZag swings into spreadsheets during a futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar.

Both commenters are correct.

I found the webinar with the info. Using the zigzag study on the spreadsheet is what is discussed, rather than the zigzag tool, which is the functionality that I am interested in.
