Different bar width for different charts possible?

I wonder is it possible to set up different bar width in different chart? This is what I want to do:

- for some charts, I'd like the bar width to be thick, so I can see clearly bar by bar action.
- but I also want to have a big picture daily or hourly chart, I'd like the bars be thin.

Sierra chart seems only have a universal bar width setup in global graphic setting. Is it possible to set up bar width separately?

One more question is that, is it possible to change the closing horizontal bar width? When I change the setting for bar close, it get thicker, but not extending more horizontally.

Yes, go to Chart >> Graphic Settings >> uncheck 'Use Global Graphics Settings.... then set width of Bar High-Low Up and Bar High-Low Down

Yes, but it also changes the Open. Go to Chart >> Graphic Settings >> Other tab >> OHLC Width %
