With the Version 3.0 Beta, setting a Default template does NOT work for subsequent charts.
On the previous version, when I clicked on a trade in the 'Trade Watch' area (say USDJPY), the already open chart for that trade would become the focus of the screen. (even if I'm on another chart at the time (say EURUSD)).
With this version, if I'm on a chart (EURUSD) and click on a trade in Trade Watch (USDJPY), then THAT chart for EURUSD changes to the trade I just clicked USDJPY. Even if there is already a chart open for the USDJPY symbol. Therefore I then lose a chart for one symbol (EURUSD) and gain an extra chart for a symbol (USDJPY) I already have an open chart for.
BTW, as an aside, on the CURRENT verion of cTrader Web setting a chart time (eg 1 minute) when creating a template does not carry through to subsequent chart openings.

Also, I've just noticed when looking at currency pairs the following.
In the CURRENT version of cTrader the EURUSD pair for a 1 lot trade, there is NO commission required.
In the version 3.0 Beta, when I hover the mouse over the lot size (in the buy/sell box above the chart) there is no commission required. But when I hover the mouse over the lot size in the 'Active Symbol Panel' there is a commission required of Au$168.89 for the EURUSD symbol.

RE: Bug fixes
This new version obviously needs some stuff sorted, my chart candles keep frezzing, they are giving different candles to the ctrader web i am running through FX pro. How long will this go on before it is fixed. Time to change otherwise.
Thanks for reporing this issue. Note that this is a beta and issues will be sorted out before releasing to brokers. Could you please share some screenshots demonstrating this issue so that our team can investigate and fix this?
