I added a macdbb indicator 2 range onto 4 range chart and wonder this look like messed up in price panel.

"equidistance is false"

chart attached of 4 range that has 2 range and its indicator in bottom panel

I followed this to add the 2nd data series
Add a second data series just as you have, then:
Right click your chart > Indicators > Select your desired indicator > Left Click Input Series > select the "..." that appears and select your data series > OK

also attached a 2 range chart that shows a clean price panel

This is as expected. If you use a chart with several bar series, NinjaTrader will switch to displaying all bars according to their time stamp. This is called non-equidistant bar spacing.

As each range bar has a different time span until completion, the range bars will be unevenly spaced across the chart.

The only way to avoid this

-> only load a single bar series
-> apply a multi-timefram MACD to your chart

The multitime frame indicator will load the secondary bar series, without displaying it on the chart.

Fat Tails
Thks for explaining.

I use 2 indicators
1) MACDBB v4.
2) MACD zerolag colors

I did look for multitime frame indicator for these and couldnt find unless you know of a place to get it.
Thks and appreciate

MACDBB can be replaced by simple MA crossover, as I try to use the BG color when MA cross changes trend
