Default linked bunching edges different length

Hello all,

I have a question about the link bunching option for hexagonal pre mesh in ICEM. Does anyone knows wether it is possible to link bunch to parallel edges of different length? The longer edge is composed of 2 smaller edges, the shorter parallel edge is a single edge. I included an illustration.

If link bunching is not possible for edges of different length, is there another similar feature ensuring the number of elements on the edges is equal?
For the moment being, I end up with a non-conformal mesh at the interface where I actually want to have a conformal mesh...

Also I prefer not splitting the lower block manually due to the complexity of the geometry, not shown here. I know this would possibly be a way around the problem.

Any hints or help is greatly appreciated.
