Reload the Tab Chart Group

Tab chart group lists should be distinguished from instrument lists.

TradersYard X enables you to select and reload multiple instrument lists using the Reload Instrument List menu item. Please note that these selections will only be valid for the chosen tab chart group.
This makes it possible to choose the Reload Selected menu option to update the edited lists for the current tab chart group on a daily basis.
