The chart layout / workspace includes only charts. Analysis window or any other non-chart window is not part of chart layout.

It would be great if Analysis windows were saved in the layouts too.
I do agree - One vote plus .

   It's an obvious fonctionality for this quality grade  software, that lack a lot for a practical use of AmiBroker  .

Automatically open charts/layout AND some Analysis windows

What if I want to automatically open charts/layout AND some Analysis windows in Amibroker?  I can save charts in Layouts, but not Analysis windows.  Those are saved in .apx files.  And only one Analysis window is saved in an .apx file.

There is a way to open all desired windows, through OLE:

1) Create a JScript file (txt file with extention .js).  In my case I named it AmibrokerPA.js.  Inside it write code similar to this:

// I need to open Amibroker first, then execute this script

ab =  new ActiveXObject("Broker.Application");

// close any open charts in Amibroker.
docs = ab.Documents() ;
docs.close() ; 

// close any open AA in Amibroker.
adocs = ab.AnalysisDocs() ; 

ab.loadLayout ( "C:\\Program Files\\AmiBroker\\forex-hist\\Layouts\\PALiveAnalysis.awl");
ab.AnalysisDocs.Open( "C:\\Program Files\\AmiBroker\\Formulas\\Include\\PALower.apx" ); 
ab.AnalysisDocs.Open( "C:\\Program Files\\AmiBroker\\Formulas\\Include\\PATrading.apx" ); 
ab.AnalysisDocs.Open( "C:\\Program Files\\AmiBroker\\Formulas\\Include\\PAHigher.apx" ); 
ab.AnalysisDocs.Open( "C:\\Program Files\\AmiBroker\\Formulas\\Include\\PAExtraLarge.apx" ); 

2) Teach Windows to run .js scripts with the C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe :
From windows explorer, right click (on the .js file) > Openwith > Choose Default program, go to C:\Windows\System32 and select wscript.exe.

3) Open Amibroker.

4) From Windows Explorer, double click the AmibrokerPA.js script, to run it.

Note: This solution may be particular to my setup: Windows 7 64 bit with Amibroker 64 bit.
