Indicators can be inserted in three different ways:
Inserts selected indicator into new chart pane.
Insert command internally creates a copy of the original formula file and places such copy into hidden drag-drop folder so the original formula will not be affected by subsequent editing. Double clicking on formula name is equivalent to choosing Insert command from the menu. These copies will not be updated automatically through the PatternExplorer setup. You need to Insert them again when you install a PatternExplorer update.
B) Insert Linked
Inserts selected indicator into new chart pane directly
Insert Linked command does not create any copy of the formula. Instead, it creates a new chart that directly links to the original formula. This way subsequent editing and/or overlaying other indicators will modify the original. Insert Linked makes it possible to update all your PatternExplorer indicators automatically through a PatternExplorer update.
Overlay selected indicator onto selected chart pane.
Overlay command internally appends additional code to the formula used by the chart. If given chart was created using Insert Linked, it will modify original (linked) formula.
