Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

There is no theoritical limitation on the volume sizes. They could be fraction of micrometer. However, the number of volumes created could become a problem, if you wish millions of volumes.

Almost all proposed examples do that. For instance, see: geant4/examples/extended/electromagnetic/TestEm4/SteppingAction or TestEm7 or any other ..
