Hello Fellow ChartWatchers,

Today I'm please to announce the grand opening of our Advanced Scan Library.  We've collected some of the best scans available and posted them in this new ChartSchool area for everyone to see.  We have a big collections of Sample Scans that will teach you how to use our Advanced Scanning tools.  A difference section contains all of our Predefined Scan criteria on one page for you to review.  We also have a collection of Published Scans that have appeared in other publications.  Finally, we have some User-Contributed Scans that our members have sent in over the years.

All of the scans are in Advanced Scan Workbench format, ready to be copied and pasted into the Advanced Scan Workbench by members of our Extra service.  Hopefully they will be helpful to you - especially if you are trying to learn more about creating your own scans.

Here's an example from the Published Scans section to give you a better sense of what the Scan Library contains:

(Click on that example to see the live scan criteria in the library which you can then cut and paste into the Advanced Scan workbench.)

The great news is that the Scan Library will continue to expand and evolve over time - especially the Published Scans section and the User-Contributed Scans section.  Do you have a non-trivial scan you'd like to see us add to the Library?  Send it to [email protected] and we'll consider it for inclusion.
