Hi Pathfinder,

If you are referring to using the spread, lot-step settings (etc) from your "other" broker, this process is already described in detail in the manual. To bring up the manual, press the F1 key within Tickstory and read the section in the manual 'Exporting to Metatrader: Customising MT4 export settings'.

If you are referring about how to export the same data for a new MT4 installation, then in Tickstory:

1) Go to File->Settings->MT4 Settings and select the folder belonging to the MT4 installation of your "other" broker. Press OK.
2) Select the symbol you wish to export and right-click and choose Export to MT4.
3) When the export is complete, press the Launch MT4 button (or press F8).
3) You should now be back-testing on your newly selected broker platform.

Hope this helps.
