Charting the difference between yesterdays close and the current price

I'm plotting the difference between yesterdays close and the current price of the ES.
I'm using:
1. One main 5 minute ES chart that is set to start: 15:30 stop 15:14:59
2. Added Study/Price Overlay for another daily ES chart that is set to start: 8:30 stop 15:14:59
3. Added study subgraph subtract/difference:
Input study #1 = main5 minute ES chart using the Last option
Input study #2 = main5 minute ES chart using the Last option
Study 2 subgraph offset = 1
Draw zeros = yes
Perform subtract with zero value = yes

Problem:
The study subgraph subtract/difference doesn't look at the current last daily bar (item #2) correctly throughout the trading session.
Normal output currently:
During the regular trading of 8:30 - 15:14:59 the plot has the correct value, looks at the last daily bar which is 1 day.
During the after hours trading of 15:30 - 8:29:59 the plot has the incorrect value...it still uses 2 days prior instead of 1 day. I can change the "Study 2 subgraph offset = 1" to "Study 2 subgraph offset = 0" and I get the correct value.

Support,
Two Things: Can you update this Study Collection so it is compatible with current version of SC? (Thank you)

Also, I want to have a Study that plots a 'cumulative' line for the difference between yesterday's (or prior bar's) close with today's (or current bar's) Open - on a cumulative basis. I'm wondering if the Study above is similar enough to be easily modified for what I'm looking for.

Thank you.

I only see the following: Attached On 2017-09-01 18:10:08 UTC - Size: 28 KB - 257 views

Is there a new collection attached somewhere? May want to remove the old one, if that's the case.
