the chat isn't displayed for streamlabs OBS if you have it on a vertical screen

so it looks that on a vertical monitor Streamlabs OBS doesn't have enough space for the chat and to fix that you could put the chat above overview next to  recent event list because recent event list doesn't have to be that big as it is right now

    Alternatively, you could leave chat running down the entire right side of the monitor and have the rest of the widgets stacked vertically.

    +1 for this

    I just installed SLOBS, trying it instead of OBS Studio. I like that its all in one window, but I have my chat open on my right monitor, which is in portrait mode. When I move SLobs over there, the chat just doesn't show up at all. Doesn't matter if it's on left or right, chat completely disappears. I personally think the chat should take priority over the event list. They really should let you customize the layout, where the panels are in the Live tab.

    Yeah it's super weird that the decision was chat wasn't important enough to show in portrait mode.

    i do not have a vertical screen, however the chat box isn't visible at all, no clue how you can ignore this.

    +1, I have to pop out twitch chat every time and do some weird window gymnastics.

    I'm still having an issue with my chat not appearing. It worked briefly then stopped out of nowhere. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing. I've tried changing the settings and such as well. Not a huge deal, but big enough that I have to make changes to the stream when this program was specifically designed to help streamers and reduce CPU usage.
