Forcing 2 charts of slightly different timeframes to show the same time amount on x-axis

Hello SC Team,
I trade in a way that watches multiple time frames for ES and NQ.
I like to keep the charts linked so that I can compare what is happening on both instruments vertically with my eyes, as in the screenshot below.
Is there a way to force two charts to show the same amount of time on the x-axis, despite being a different timeframe?
For example, in the screenshot, I have on the right hand side a SPX500 chart in 100 ticks, and below it is a NAS100 chart in 500 ticks. These are fairly close matches and I need to see the tick structure, as opposed to watching say 5-minute candles.
Can these charts be set in such a way that as I zoom around in and out, they stay showing the same amount of time?
Perhaps by forcing this action via a spreadsheet or ACSIL commands, if it is not natively supported?
Thank you for any advice,
Mike

Linking the Scroll Position will give you what you want. Refer to the following:

Thanks
That is a little different
You can link the scroll position.
However, I’m looking for the same period of time to display in the chart windows.
The chart that has more ticks would necessarily have to squish itself in order to match.
Is that possible?

There is nothing that does this. You would have to do this manually as best you can, but depending on the bar periods, you may not be able to get it to work out perfectly across a chart.

As it turns out, I just switched from CFDs to Futures, and the tick frequency in ES is 1/2 that of NQ, which keeps them much closer in sync.
Thank you!

It seems like this can be done through some pretty advanced ACSIL...
