More Details and How to Access the New Features

Improved Tooltips in Quotes Widget 

When hovering over a symbol in QSS and in the heatmap view of the quotes widget, you receive a more comprehensive tooltip that provides a current market data summary. 

Contract Month and Month/Year Columns in QSS

You can now add the contract month and contract month/year columns in QSS using the column manager. You can access the column manager from the task menu on the quote widget.

Order Size Defaults

You can now set up default order size values in the order size buttons of the trading widgets. To access, go to Preferences and then select Order size buttons. Type in a commodity symbol in the symbol field and then click the Add symbol button. A row for that commodity will be added to the list. Type in the three default order sizes you want for that commodity. Next time you enter that symbol into HOT or the trade widget, the order size buttons will show the values you've entered.
