Plotting Study Overlay With 100% Accuracy

Support Request:

Trying to find out why a Study/Price Overlay might not be plotting signals 100% of the time.

Original Signal Chart 1: 2 tick Point & Figure, signals based on Color Bar Based on Alert Condition.
Chart where the Overlay is added: 7 tick Range (range met in ticks)

The signals are plotting almost every time (90% or so). However, some are being ignored and I can't figure out why.

I've changed the Data Copy Mode and Bar Time Matching Method but no combination seems to result in 100% of the signals plotting on the 7 tick range.

Is there any way to force the plot? Is there another overlay method that can/should be used?

The solution to this is to use this particular study to do the overlays of the Color Bar Based on Alert Condition:

After using the approach on that page one other question has come up.

Is it possible to plot the original Draw Style used on the slower chart with this?

For example, on the faster chart, I am using a Square.

Though it seems to accurately indicate eevery True condition of the study I'm trying to overlay (when show zero values set to Yes) Study/Overlay OHLC seems to plot a representation of the bars themselves.

I'm trying to plot the same Color Bar Draw Style from the faster chart - in this case, a square. Study Price/Overlay will plot the Square but not 100% of the time.

We cannot think of a quick solution to this. You really would have to modify the study to meet your requirements:
