OHLC or Candlestick charts can't scale y axis

If you check Scatter Plots, as you zoom in the charts , the y axis scales to give you better perspective.

In OHLC and Candlestick charts, you can only zoom in by the x axis, therefore the y axis remains the same and bars/candles don’t adjust to your zoom.

I went through a lot of posts and github issues and couldn’t find any solution to this, but most of those were old, so maybe things changed from the past couple years.

So, is there anyway to make the y axis to scale as I zoom in?

I still have this problem when I made something today by following SRC

just for info and hope it will be debugged. Thanks.
