Save Multiple Layouts for Viewers
A SAVE LAYOUT to recovery previous view from last closing of program

Agreed! Save layouts and open windows when restarting. Password too!
Ideally, restarting every market day should not be necessary, but as long as it is, I shouldn't need to reenter my password or recreate my layout, windows, etc.

SAVE LAYOUTS FOR REPORT PRINTOUTS. I HAVE TO CHANGE RESELECT CUSTOM REPORT EVERYTIME AND ADJUST LAYOUT TO LANDSCAPE AND RESET MARGINS. IF I HAVE A CUSTOM LAYOUT, SAVE THE ORIENTATION AND MARGINS SO I DON[T HAVE TO DO IT EVERY TIME.

My issue is with Watchlists in Viewers. When I "order" a list I should be able to retain that ordering of data. I also agree with those who want an ability to control columns / content within the Viewer Watchlists. I (apparently like others) waste a lot of time re-ordering data. Not everyone wants their list sorted in VST order. Thank you.

I agree that multiple layouts are needed for Viewers, Unisearch, and Portfolios. VectorVest US had "portfolio view and Watchlist View in the old Back-test tool so the approach has been successfully tried before at VV.
Some people maintain aggressive portfolios alongside prudent, income-oriented ones and want different layouts in Viewers or Uni-Search when seeking replacement stocks. You can add a lot of columns to your layout in Portfolios but when you do they end up out of sight to the right and you have to scroll over to see them. Sometimes you want data from the left side and right side at the same time. Right now, the work=around I sptthe portfolio out to a .CSV file and hide columns you don't want. Not exactly user-friendly.

Allow users to save multiple “Layout Configuration” choices to be used platform wide.
Allow “Layout Configuration” choices to be saved in Viewers to be used in the UniSearch or Portfolio tab. Allow for users to save “layout configurations” under a name and then allow these “layout configurations” to be used in other tabs across the platform.

This would be great as it would eliminate the need to sort through columns that you are not interested in everytime that you re-start the program
Stanley Cornelius commented
yes, including column widths, headings, formulas, etc

Save Layout by name, like you can do with graphs. This would allow different layouts for different requirements such as searching, buying, monitoring ............
