I need to increase the weight of the border and wick of the candles in thinkorswim. I can't see them well. Here is a screen shot from Tradestation where they give you options. Please help me do this in TOS. Thank you. btw, I have already tried everything possible like zoom, etc. etc.

I don't know if you can do that. I know for sure you can increase the font size in ThinkorSwim through your platform's settings. But I'm afraid there is no option to adjust the candles' size or its wick unless you manually zoom into the chart.

Just looking to follow up on this question. Are there any scripts that possibly change the thickness of the candle wicks so they are easier to see on the charts without having to manually zoom in? I contacted ToS support today (June 23, 2021) and they couldn't provide me any answers, I did make the suggestion to send to the developer to possibly make this an option. Maybe if more people ask about it they may take it for action.

@rwfarrell I have never had an issue seeing the wicks and tails other than when obscured by indicators or clouds... Can you post a screenshot or two if the issue you are experiencing...??? Have you tried altering the colors under either Chart Settings > Appearance or Style > Settings > Appearance...???

Thanks for the reply. I was looking to just increase the thickness of the candle wicks. I see other platforms where the body of the candle is the same but the thicker wicks are easier on the eyes to make off these levels. If you put the mouse arrow on a daily candle it does it automatically which is great until you move the cursor off that particular candle.
