Post From: Flex Renko Charting Problem

I'm sorry but I stopped using graph paper in Junior High. Instead I've attached a screenshot explaining what I'm talking about. But even without the screenshot, what I don't understand is this...
1. The incorrectness of the original Flex bars is what made them unique. By changing to a true ohlc you change the functionality. Your outside developer developed the bars in the same way that your competitors software did because they realized what traders want.
2. You keep debating the fact of whether the true ohlc is the proper way to construct the bars, and as I said earlier, that is not the issue. If you look at my attached screenshots in this post, you will see there is a difference in the appearance of the two charts.
3. What I don't understand is if your developer developed them in a certain way for a reason, and your competitors software and other system creators also create the bars in the same way, that means there is a demand for the bars. But for some reason you don't seem to care about that and only care about being anal about whether the code is technically correct.
4. Rather than do the simple, logical thing and keep a version of the old bars for traders who have built systems around them, you take the stance that it's "your way, or no way!" You are so anal about the code, that you are forgetting the needs of your customers. You then put the responsibility on us, which means that some of us may have to pay to have things reprogrammed. And I'm sure there are others who preferred the old bars but who do not wish to get into a back and forth debate such as I've had to endure.
Then to add insult to injury, you say you're more than happy to lose customers over this (which I see you have since deleted) But kept my post saying how polite you are... Anyway, I've said all I can say. This is exhausting. I've attached a screenshot and you can decide whether that's enough to warrant keeping the old bars as a different operating mode as you suggested.
