You can choose from a numbers of instruments, which all the preset settings for that instrument. For example, AMS vx.xx ES will open up the Workspace for the S&P E-mini.

Note:
Since Tick Replay is being used and all three charts are being opened simultaneously please give it 1-2min to completely load depending on your CPU speed and internet connection. When you see the SessionStats populating the chart that will give a indication the load is completed.

Depending on the type of template file you also want to set the right type of periodicity.
Initially it will be on a 1 minute chart.

For DeltaPrint use we always recommend using the AMS RevBars.

ES:
Normal       6-8 tick Reveral
Higher .  10-12  tick Reveral

NQ:
Normal:  10-12 tick Reveral
