(1) How and where do I go about changing the inputs for Point and Figure "box size" and "reversal size"?

(2) and is there a way to make those inputs ("box size" and "reversal size") automatic based on a formula of average true range?

1. The Box Size and Reversal are set in the Chart >> Chart Settings >> Bar Period >> Setting option. When the Bar Period Type is set to Point and Figure the Setting field takes the input for the Box Size-Reversal. Refer to the following:
Chart Settings: Intraday Chart Bar Period >> Settings (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Bar Period menu)

2. There is not a way to do this with built-in tools, but you can develop a custom study that will do this for you. Refer to the following:
