Hi toughiee, NT 7 won't do it unless you code it yourself.
futures.io has a thread where you can post an indicator request for free.
If someone decides to do it for you, then there you go.
Otherwise you need to fork over some $$$$ to have it written by a 3rd party vendor. There's an extensive list on NT site.

NT 8 does have a "candle" option but like it's more like a HiLo bar. Check out the 2 pics to see the difference.
NT 7 = X's & O's (style is grayed out)
NT 8 = has different styles available.

Hope this helps & good trading, JM

This developer has created one version of PNF which i find interesting. It is free:
Tick Reversal bars type is a simple volatility-based bars type. The building of such bars is based on a similar concept as the Point and Figure charts but much easier in customization — it has only one parameter.
DISCOTRADING: Reversal Bars Type

since PNF bar type comes with NT8, your best bet is using NT8 for PNF chart.
