[fruityloops] What's the best bar length to work with?

I was wondering what size bar lengths are to work with for step-sequences
that will be used in the play list.
Are we able to have different sized bars in one Fruity session?   I know I
could use the Piano Roll, but I'd like to visually see the length of a loop
in the playlist.
