Can I use the layout and Hotkeys I used in the simulator on DAS Trader Pro?

Yes, just perform a backup of your settings in the simulator platform. In DAS Trader simulator, go to Tools menu and select “Backup Settings” to automatically create a backup file in your desktop, or you can do it manually: open the platform folder and copy over the desktop files (.dsk), chart setting files (.cst), and Hotkey files (.htk). Using the automatic method, once you have your backup ready, in your new DAS Trader Pro that is linked to your broker, go to Tools menu and select “Restore” to automatically restore your settings in your new installation of DAS Trader Pro.
