Rounded box positions for renko charts

A feature request concerning renko charts:

I often use renko charts to trade the e-mini. My expectation/hope is that if I create a renko chart with a box size of 5.00 points (as an example), then the boxes will align at even intervals like 2800, 2805, 2810, 2815, 2820, .... This way, the position of the boxes are independent of the specific data on the chart. In other words, the boxes will align to the "round numbers" regardless of the opening tick of the chart.

The reality is that renko charts currently depend on the first tick of data for Data1. For example, if I have a chart with ten days of data, and the first tick of the first day is 2802.75, then the chart will have box divisions at 2802.75, 2807.75, 2812.75, 2817.75, .... That seems weird and suboptimal.

It's worse if you enable the "break on session" option. In that case, each session will have a different box position, based on the opening tick of each session. For example, one day might have box positions at 2802.75, 2807.75, ....,, while another day might have box divisions at 2801.00, 2806.00, 2011.00, .... This seems counterintuitive.

Would it be possible to make the renko box sizes align to even intervals? This could either be the default behavior or an option.
