At a high level, linking LTA to your ThinkorSwim (TOS) is done by creating a detached chart in TOS and then linking LTA to that chart. Here are the specific steps.
1) In TOS, create a detached chart using the menu icon (upper-right) of the main TOS application
2) Open LTA using the "Live Trading Alerts for TOS" desktop icon (or Windows Start Menu)
3) In LTA, Click Tools>Options>Chart-Linking>ThinkorSwim
4) Click Add Link
5) Click in the detached chart window of a TOS (this will fill in the LTA field "Window Name")
7) Click OK
This is the basic process and will work in 95% of cases. If you are one of the unlucky few, please see below for additional steps
That's it. Now double-click any Alert or Scan Result Ticker in LTA. It should open that chart in TOS.
