It would be good if it would be possible to refer to the variable Symbol in Free Form Condition. My browser (Chrome) hangs every time I try to add it as a normal condition and this would probably be a way to workaround that huge combo box (?) and provide a simple mean for finding a specific stock. It would also allow for filtering several stocks at once using IN().

Free Form Condition can only be used for quantitative formulas and variables. If you are just trying to view a stock, you can use the small boxes in the upper right to either view a profile directly or add a single symbol directly to a watchlist.

We also have the bulk add to watchlist menu item, which allows you to add a group of symbols to a watchlist all at once. That can allow you to rank or view data on a group of individual stocks.

Thanks, with "filtering several stocks at once using IN()" I meant I could use it to succinctly remove certain symbols from my screening results that I know I'm not interested in. But it's not a particularly important feature, so if it's a tricky one to implement I can certainly get by without it

Oh, one greater benefit of being able to reference symbols from variables and stuff, is that it would give an opportunity to adjust for off-balance assets and liabilities or other adjustments. "My EV = EV unless Symbol == 'SpecificStockWithLeases' then EV = EV + 100M", kind of...

If you click on a company in a result set and select "Remove from Screen", your screen will be updated to remove that symbol. You can do that an arbitrary number of times (to remove many individual companies).
