Error Bars on a Stacked Bar Chart

I am trying to make a stacked bar chart using graph builder in JMP 13 Pro. The output looks great except that it won't display the error bars. Seems to be working fine if I make a side by side clustered bar chart, but I don't think stacked bar charts support the error bars. Does anyone have a clever way of getting the standard error bars to appear? Thanks.

Re: Error Bars on a Stacked Bar Chart

I think the error bars are not displayed because it's not clear what it means to have an error bar on a stacked bar chart. The stacks here are the sum of the means of each group. What would the error bar on that bar chart be?

Re: Error Bars on a Stacked Bar Chart

What I am aiming for are error bars on the blue bars. They would represent one standard error for the average mean of each treatment. The red bars are just there for visual clarity. I can make a chart of just the blue bars with error bars. Adding the red bars makes me lose this feature
