    Is there an easy/quick way to change parameter of a spread (strike or quantity) that was set up in the main quote page of IB? Or I have to create a whole new spread using the Generic Combo function?

    Never mind, I find out how;)

    If you want to change a leg you need to recreate it from scratch. IB has been getting better and better IMO, but this lack of flexibility puts it behind other platforms, on the other hand it forces you to be prepared.

    Actually I found out that if you click on buy or sell in the original trade, it will show you a new order which you can change on the fly on the Quote page before you transmit.
