First, let me thank you for responding in a detailed, professional and polite manner. This wasn't always the case in the past. And I will just say one last thing. I can understand that keeping the old bars is nonsensical to you, because as a programmer you are only looking at it from the perspective of creating perfect code. So from your perspective, having bars that are not technically perfect seems to be substandard for your program and must be removed. But what you have to understand is that from a PRACTICAL trading standpoint, those incorrect bars that you loath so much are highly useful for traders and I suspect that is why your outside developer developed them in the way that he did.
And I have tried all of the Renko New Bar Modes but was not able to recreate the old bars. I have paid programmers to create systems based on the ohlc of those older bars which are now rendered useless. As you can see from my screenshots, those old bars filtered price movement and served a purpose. I guess I have no choice but to rollback to an earlier version and forgo updates. Congratulations on creating the perfect code, at the expense of the wants and needs of your customers...
