Hi guys,
I found that on Multicharts, if I insert volume of a point-and-figure chart, the volume indicator shows the range of the column( the number of boxes of one column), not the real volume during that column.
So how can I make it to show the real volume? Is there a new indicator needed?

it appears you can't only get the number of boxes, but not the real volume:

You could create an indicator that computes the volume out of a secondary datastream, but for accuracy you might have to use a 1 tick chart.
