Sometimes you want to normalize a particular analyte against a different molecule. Skyline supports this with the "Surrogate Standard" feature.

To designate that a molecule can be used as a surrogate standard, right click on the molecule in the Targets tree and choose "Set Standard Type > Surrogate Standard".

You have to use the Document Grid to change the normalization method of the analyte. The "Normalization Method" column is not shown by default, so you need to customize a view in the Document Grid and add that column. You can start by choosing "Peptides" from the Views dropdown on the Document Grid. Then, choose "Customize View" and add the "Normalization Method" to the view. The Normalization Method column is under "Proteins > Peptides". (also note the button at the top with the binoculars icon can be used to find columns by name)

If you have surrogate standards in your document, then the "Normalization Method" column will have options of the form "Ratio to surrogate..."
