Template

A template contains the configuration of an entire chart window. Applying it to a new window (or to an existing one), window current configuration will be IRREVERSIBLY replaced by template. The result will be a chart window (almost) identical to the one where the template was created.

By applying a template to a window, you avoid setting properties and indicators on new chart window again, making the configuration operation practically instantaneous

Creating a template means making a copy of almost all settings of a chart window. Settings/objects such as drawing tools are not saved in the template

Template is independent of the window owner instrument. If you create a template from a window containing the ES (S&P 500) chart, you can apply the template to any other window. The owner instrument of the second window will remain unchanged. Only settings and indicators will change.

To clone a chart window entirely, you can use clone function instead of applying a template
