Last friday, I had to download 851 due to IB cutting off server support for prior versions. I think I was using 8.46 or 8.3x before. Whatever it was, it was damn stable, and did all I needed it to do. I did a fresh seperate install of 8.51, and it appeared to go fine. However, IB included no instructions that I could find on transferring my configuration and page setups to the newer version. I deleted the 'demo' page that initially came up in 851, but the only way I could figure out to bring up MY positions was to create a page titled "portfolio". Which I did, and it did automatically load all my positions from the IB server. However, they come up in some random order which is NOT, of course, how -I- want the data-lines laid out. So I spend 15 minutes moving data-lines around, and adding the NON-position items that I keep in TWS for reference; like QM for example, to keep track of crude-oil during the day. And here's the BIG problem. Shut down and restart of TWS, and the midnight server-shutdown/restart at IB, causes all the data-lines to be reordered and crunched into to a single dense mass again! Plus, it auto-deletes all the informational zero-position data-lines that I painfully entered. How can these two things be disabled? I can see that a page titled 'portfolio' might not retain zero-position datalines, but when I created a page with a different title, I could not figure out how to get it to load my positions from the IB server. And even so, the darn thing shouldn't be re-ordering my datalines in "portfolio" every time it restarts. This is wasting a half-hour each morning now. Worse, I have emailed tac@ib every day since Friday asking for help on this, and have had not even the courtesy of a reply, let alone an answer. I'd be very grateful for a clear answer on how to solve this problem. thanks!
