Resizing the chart regions and making them transparent

Question 1 (see attachment 1):
I have 4 chart regions: 1 is price and then 2,3 and 4 are studies.
Currently if i resize the region 4 (distance a in attachment 1) by dragging up the line between region 3 and 4 the region 4 becomes bigger but the region 3 becomes smaller. Is it possible to change this behaviour so that instead of region 3 becoming smaller, the height of regions 3 and 2 (distances b and c in attachment 1) would be locked and they would move up by maintaining their sizes, making main region 1 smaller at the bottom?

Question2 (see attachment 2):
In TradingView the region of Volume study is transparent (for lack of better description) and the price bars are visible inside the Volume study region. Is it possible to replicate the same behaviour in Sierra, so that if price chart is moved to the study region then both the price and the study bars would be visible?

I went through all the Sierra settings and google with no luck so i presume the answer is no to both but just want to double check

Many thanks

1. No, this is not supported. You have to adjust the individual regions.

2. Yes, you can do this. Add the Volume study to the chart and place it in Region 1 where the main price graph is located. You just have to make sure you set the scale to Independent.

If you also want the transparency, then you would want to change the Draw Style to Transparent Fill Rectangle to Zero. Refer to the information here:
