Here's an image of my 3000volume chart of the ES, http://www.sierrachart.com/image.php?l=1369347670330.png

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.

Not certain what you did to cause this.

This is quite unusual.

What is the Candlestick Width % in Global Settings >>Graphics Settings?

OK it looks as though you are using Price Volume bars.

So you want to reduce the width of the Price Volume bars.

If you are having trouble with Price Volume bars, then do not use that kind of Graph Draw Type.

if you use a price volume bar width of 1 it plots the same as default which is 125, try 50 or so and play around with it

Yes, this must be it. You must have Increased the Bar Width. This is an area of functionality we have not documented.

You can decrease it back to normal with Chart >> Decrease Bar Width.
