    In OptionTrader the dragging and dropping option legs to make a spread locks up the whole program when you click ok to request market data.
    Back to legging the spreads, pity my margin!

    I avoid beta tws releases like the plague. Actually, I dislike all tws upgrades. I'd still use version 783 if they'd let me.

    I had problems with screen redrawing in 843.7 and 845.5 so this is my only chance to actually put a trade on!

    Can you please tell me the legs you were dragging in so I can attempt to reproduce the problem?

    NDX, change exchange from nasdaq, which is not an options exchange to ise,
    click on generic combo, drag june 1650 call , drag june 1675 call, change 1650 call to sell, click on ok to request market data. Program locks up, has happened three times.

    How do you ensure you get 1$ a contract smart routing commission when trading a spread?

    I have replicated this problem, which initially occurred using Firefox, in Internet Explorer version 6, xp sp2.

    Still not fixed in TWS version 847.6 using java 1.5.02. When is it going to be looked at? I want to put some spread orders in.
