To see the full list of supported hotkeys, use the gear icon in the left panel to open Preferences, and select Hotkeys.
Mirror Columns in Option Chains
By default, option chain columns are shown in the same order for the call and bid side, separated by the Strike Price column. We now provide the ability to mirror all of the columns, or to mirror all but the bid and ask.
Column layouts with mirroring will look like this:
|Bid, Ask, Last, Delta, Gamma||Bid, Ask, Last, Delta, Gamma|
Mirror except Bid/Ask:
|Gamma, Delta, Last, Bid, Ask||Bid, Ask, Last, Delta, Gamma|
|Gamma, Delta, Last, Ask, Bid||Bid, Ask, Last, Delta, Gamma|
