I have an arm and an hand in one same layer and put the sticks and draggable points properly. It works just fine, but I just want to have the hand not warped when I drag it. Is there any way to make it stay its size without making it independent? Because I want both the arm and the hand dragged together.

Sticks and independence are the two main ways to stop warping. A few suggestions to try.

It works! It works! Thank you very much!
I have another question, still concerning warping,
When I drag the arm, while recording it, the result of the recorded data is somehow warping.
You see, I do a pose to pose animation with CH. Every time I make my puppet to make a hand pose, like in the picture, I want to have the puppet immediately get into that position, even in the first frame of the recorded data. However, the result when I played it cause some weird warping before getting into the "posed" data I want. Take a look at the pictures.
Sorry, i did not notice this since it was marked as resolved!
Yeah, CH can start with some twisting at the start of a frame. Physics can also mess up here (eg leaves falling or hair dangles with bouncy hair) so what they did was to allow you to specify a subrange of a scene using controls at the top of the timeline. It will remember these settings (the start and end of a clip from the scenes) and that is what will get exported etc. So when you get these weird twisty hands, or bouncy hair, select a workspace range starting a few seconds into the scene so the hands etc have a chance to settle down before the recording really starts.
I don't understand why hands have the problem, and it's only for some puppets and not all, but the hair is fairly obvious why it is needed. The hair starts in the default position, then drops down and bounces a little at the start of a scene as it finds the equilibrium for gravity vs sptringyness of hair. It was too hard to work out automatically what normal was, so they added the workspace selection support instead.
I quite don't undersrand yet. I am sorry. I am new.
Could you please make a simple explanation?
I have no business with physics of hair right now, so it's not really concerning me. But the slight twist in the first several frames of the recorded data is troubling me. I feel it's like a bug now:(
Simplified. Sometimes it messes up the first few frames. There is no solution to fix the frames I know of (well, it's hard!)
Instead is the work area feature (documentation link above) to select a range from a few frames after the start of your scene to the end of the scene. CH will then use that range instead of the full scene, automatically dropping the first few frames.
