Keep stream performance Metrics Open

Keeping stream performance metrics expanded as part of the lower bar the main window, as opposed to popping it into a separate window, would be ideal. I understand not wanting to always have it open, but not having the option to do so feels like a reduction of features as of 0.17.0

    This update is not worth anything. I am disappointed and agree with you. Plus the dashboard is gone. I will have to start streaming through other software.

    YES. First thing I noticed, (and hated) about this update which that is the only change other than looks. So please, just make it always visible, and OPTIONAL to expand in new window like now.

    Easy fix, use the "mouseover" action and just have "mouseover" always be true?? ;D

    Updated the app today and was getting gather bored having to keep tabbing out to see my FPS/Dropped Frames in the pop-out window of it. It should be there constantly with an option to condense it if you choose.

    YES, it was the first thing I saw and despised immediately.  I've been having connection issues recently and it's the only way I can truly verify my stability with.  Need it up without alt tabbing.

    Noticed this morning, should be on 100% of the time. The pop-out is not useful, I'm not a fan of trying to layer so many windows on my monitors. Having just SLOBS open and glancing at perf periodically looking for dropped frames/etc is the best way.

    Not sure why this changed, being always visible was great as the performance information provided there was critical information accessible at a glance. At least having an option to preserve always-visible behavior is a must as popping out an additional overlay is entirely unnecessary and cumbersome for what was originally a solid feature/design.

    This change is worse in everyway. It is impractical to hover the cursor over the stats to see them only whilst the cursor is active... you can't see important stats at a glance as you could before anymore...

    What's more, if I click on the performance metrics & open it in a window my "Mixer" stops working & the sound levels no longer show so I wasn't even sure if audio was working for my speakers / microphone.

    Please give the option to revert back to how it was.

    Yes, please make the stream performance always visible like it use to be. There was reason to mess with in the first place.

    What the hell are you doing people? Why did you hide stream performance Metrics?

    cant even believe someone though this was a good idea...and the very least you could have made it toggle friendly. Not using Slobs until that's fixed. OBS standard it is again, It's streaming software, we need our stats. It's not StreamGucci

    You can keep the metrics open!

    Please change this back. You introduced absolutely no extra accessibility at the loss of a good display feature. Please return it to the previous condition.

    Yes, this is ridiculous they haven't listened to us yet to put out a  hotfix and just REVERT the changes, which if they are half decent programmers, should be able to roll-back unless they compromised doing so with coding errors. What I'm saying is, PUT IT BACK WHERE IT WAS so we only need the MAIN window!!! Let's see if they listen I suppose :(

    100% would like to see this. As a streamer this is essential information.

    I can't believe this is a pop out window. This was a horrible idea. Where did the status bar go? Where is the dashboard? This is a huge step back.

    The space saved by removing the information was replaced with nothing at all. Why not leave that useful information visible?

    Bring back always on performance metrics!

    WTF did you guys do? Lost everything cant see metrics, this new version is garbage, gonna go back to OBS studio

    It makes zero sense for a streamer to have to tab out of their game and mouse over the performance metrics icon in SLOBS in order to see if they're dropping frames or if their CPU usage is high. As it is now, important performance metrics being visible at all times have been replaced with blank space. It's absolutely baffling that this change was made in the first place, but hopefully, they will revert it.

    It's been driving me crazy having to open up that tiny little window which barely has enough space on my single monitor

    Yes. i require performance metrics to be displayed at all times.
    Switching back to Original (Not Streamlabs) OBS until this is fixed.

    How anyone thought this was a good UI decision.. There is a ton of room to the right of the button. Just give us the option to have the metrics always there?

    Mouseover is useless when you don't know if you're dropping frames or lagging. Please go back to always keep open performance metrics or make an option to mouseover.

    I have 1 question to devs - why would you remove it?

  • Kaz_Mono commented

    There's no reason this should have been changed.
