I was looking under Chart Dom Settings - Global, and the option is not there. Has it moved to somewhere else?

Yes it has moved. Here is the relevant documentation for the new setting:

Is this a package 5 feature? I can't seem to get it to work on the DOM.

Your service package does include this functionality. So we can get a better understanding of this:

Provide an image of the chart or Trade DOM, by following these instructions:

Just in case the first upload wasn't good, I added another screenshot.

You did enable the volume bars on the Ask side but they are very faint. Do you see them?

But you also need to enable them on the Bid side and change the colors through the Graphics Settings:

Hello guys, I am new to the platform, activated my trial a few days ago. I have the latest version of Sierra. I have a question on how can I activate the Volume Bars for Bid/Ask sizes, please? Thanks (I have attached a photo for more clarity of what I mean)

We are not sure what you are trying to show in the images, as we do not see any differences in terms of volume profiles in the Bid/Ask, and you have the backgrounds colored the same in both.

In terms of displaying the Volume Profiles for the Bid and Ask, refer to the following:
Global Trade Settings Windows: Show Volume Bars (Trade >> Customize Chart/Trade DOM Columns)

You will want to ensure that the Volume Bars are not the same as the Background Coloring you have or you will not be able to see them. Refer to the following settings for the Trade DOM (note there are equivalent options for the Chart DOM that are separate):
Customizing Fonts, Colors, Line Styles, and Widths for Chart Trading, Chart DOM, and Trade DOM: Trade DOM Bid Volume Bar

Also, in case this is what you are asking - refer to the following for how to change the position of the columns:
Global Trade Settings Windows: Move Up/Left (Trade >> Customize Chart/Trade DOM Columns)

thank you, guys! The first link worked. It's what I was looking for. To display the volume profiles on the bid-ask. Thank you again!
