Display position size

Question

Hi everyone,

I was entering some positions on my demo account from a list I had open in my excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet contained the ticker symbols and number of contracts in adjacent columns. As I was selecting tickers from the search list I noted that my intended position size is displayed in the trading box automatically.I hadnt -knowingly- initiated any setting to allow this and found the trading platform to be able to read the list from my spreadsheet and who know what else to be rather intrusive. Can anybody tell me what might have happened and how to avoid this problem?

Thank you

No actually it was the spreadbet demo account platform

I know there is a link between prt and excel but not for IG's platform, check it wasn't just the autofill that remembers your last position size and fills in for new orders, can be turned off in the settings tab on the left hand side of the screen.
