I double- tested the approach on my end, and it worked as expected. I suspect that there may be another setting/style which may be influencing the behavior of the bars at your end. However, based on the supplied information, it is hard to pinpoint the cause. If the issue persists, you can open a formal support ticket, and send us a small working project, demonstrating your settings, and the resulting layout, for additional review and testing.
