Chart Scaling what am I missing

Here's an image of my 3000volume chart of the ES

I would like to keep the same amount of candles on the screen but make them and the delta candles smaller so I can see them better. How do I do this?

I went to global settings > Graphic Settings > Other Tab and made the price volume bars width% 1%. I then when to the chart's graphic settings and checked the Use global graphics settings instead of these settings and they're still huge.

I also changed the candlestick width % in the global graphics settings but that didn't work on this chart but did change it on other charts which I don't want to do.


This is the response I got from Sierra -

"Not certain what you did to cause this.
This is quite unusual.
What is the Candlestick Width % in Global Settings >>Graphics Settings?"

To which my answer was 35%.

Anyone here know what I did or didn't do to get the chart to look this way?

Got it. Someone at the SC forum helped out. If you go to chart tab > decrease bar width it shrinks the candles so they're normal. Still have no idea how they got that way.
