I have requested this before but am updating it for 2019!

I really would like a feature to save my chart layout. So many times something happens in OT and the charts and configuration dissappear and have to be rebuilt.

This would be a real time saver for a collection of charts with various templates applied and of different sizes.

Yes, it is a real pain when some unexpected error - like downloading some VBA code with an invisible return at the end - causes a major disruption that has you scrambling to remember what colors, sizes, etc. you went to a great deal of trouble initially to craft were.

I've resorted to doing a screen shot of the template and saving it. You still have to rebuild the template by hand but at least you know the layout you had. (Actually just had to rebuild a chart template again yesterday)

Diamondjag:

The problem, however, is not limited to just one Chart Template, but usually all the ones wherein the color, width and type (solid, dot, dash....) are not specifically specified in the coding.

I know because I had it happen to me a couple of days ago as well.

And with perhaps over 50 Chart Templates that is a lot of screen shots.
