Does anyone now how to modify Session Time in NT7?

This might appear to a be a silly question, but I am new to NT7, and I am having trouble adjusting the Session Time. I've attempted to use the Session Manager, but it seems like each day begins at 9:00AM. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Right click a chart and choose "data series". About half way down you can select which session template that chart will use.

Whereas 6.5 really only had one properties menu per chart, NT7 now has 3: Data Series (right click on main chart window), Chart Properties (right click on chart) & there is also a properties for the panel that is accessed by right clicking on the price scale in the right margin of a chart.

Another item is that you can right click on any "data series" screen or any "Indicator" screen and now select to save the current settings as default for that time frame or indicator.

It took me some time to get used to the minor changes in NT7, but I must admit they are a huge improvement overall. The ability to download data and replay is simply awesome.

Futures Edge on FIO
You can customize the session times under ControlCenter> Tools > Session Manager

& individually edit the start and stop times.

Since I watch 4 instruments I give each its own unique name.

Shown is YM (times are Pacific US)
