If one of your Advanced Options frames has the focus, you will find, on the main menu bar, a menu named Advanced Options; clicking on it will reveal a drop-down box with a selection of menus - operations and options that concern this particular frame.
You can access the same operations and options from the Advanced Options Toolbar, as well as from the popup menu that is invoked if you right-click anywhere in an Advanced Options table - except a Last, Bid or Ask cell - and select Options (take a look at the image from the right).
Back to the previously mentioned as exceptions, Bid, Ask and Last will trigger Order Entry-related actions (for details read the Order Entry section).
The simpler menu that triggers the pop-up with Advanced Options actions also contains other items that will be presented below. Its content depends on the mode you are using (Selection or One-click Trading Mode) and the column you are clicking on.
Please note that the Futures Table will always act as if in One-click Trading Mode, with the slight difference that a click on a cell that doesn't trigger Order Entry actions will display a slightly-modified, but similar popup to some we've seen that far (not shown here).
At the bottom of the main Advanced Options pop-up menu (caption on the right side), there is a selection of menus that allow quick access to significant actions that concern existing or new Workspaces and Frames.
By using the Copy to Clipboard option, you can copy the information from your Advanced Options tables and use it where you need by pasting it. In order to read more about this functionality, please click here.
