Gantt Chart Questions Follow
I have a question concerning the gannt chart. So I have tasks on chart with estimations, but when I add a subtask the estimations change and the bar on the chart also. I wanna add subtasks and spent time for them but the bar and estimation should stay the same, only the progression of the main task should be affected.

When you enable time tracking, the estimation and spent time values are calculated the following way: the parent task's value is the sum of its subtasks' values. If for some reason that's not how you want it to work, then you have a few options:
disable the time tracking feature either in the respective project settings or globally. You can also just disable the estimation tracking by leaving the estimation field empty
use a different link type. By default, the calculations are based on the parent for → subtask of link. For example, on a Gantt chart, you can also visualize issue connections via a dependency link, which may be more suitable for your case
