When one use minute bars/candles with a three or two series chart setup both the Trade, Bid, and Ask is within the same bar/candle space. This makes analysis with Bid/Ask volume indicators look the same as when only using the Trade field with price indicators.
But, when using Tick, Contract, Point, or Renko charts with a multiple data series chart setup the bars/candles for the different series, I am tempted to say are all over the place ;) , gets painted side by side making the chart messy. This makes the indicators look incoherent. Another thing with the instrument itself is that it takes a lot of space compared to a single field chart setup, making it difficult to have a good overview and good feel for price behaviour.
Could you please make it so that Tick, Contract, Point, and Renko charts with multiple series from the same instrument with the same resolution settings comes within the same bar space just as with minute bars?

Steps to reproduce this issue

Insert both the trade, bid, and ask on a Tick, Contract, Point, or Renko chart with the same instrument and resolution settings with a real time feed. The bars for the different fields is painted side by side. Do the same with a 1 minute chart, and all three fields is within the same bar space as normal.
