thinkBack + Scan: Midpoint only?

Hello!

TOS calculates Option Prices in thinkBack or Scan Mode as midpoint prices, which is VERY misleading (Garbage in/Garbage out) when there is a large bid/ask spread and/or low volume.

How can I force TOS to calculate with bid and ask prices, as it does correctly in SimulatedTrades?

Thanks for answering!
