Hi,

As a new forum member I would just like to say well done on making vMix a pretty amazing piece of software, as after a couple of weeks of testing of other software suites vMix seems to have everything I need. However, I have come across a bug which while it doesn't stop me using vMix, it does create a couple of issues with my workflow.

The issue comes from having 2 monitors, one in 16:9 showing the MultiView fullscreen output and another showing the main vMix window. However I have set this monitor up in 9:16 format (1080x1920) in order to see the maximum number of inputs at the largest size, as the preview and output windows are shown on the fullscreen output.

The bug is when I use multiple inputs, there is no scroll bar when I maximize the window to go through the inputs and they don't all fit on one screen. However, when I un-maximize the screen the scroll bar appears but a long way to the right of the inputs. I have taken a screenshot of the issue:

If there's any more info you need just let me know

The minimum width required for vMix is 1280 across, so this is why you can't see the scrollbar.
It's there, it's just hidden under the non visible portion of the window.

Regards,

I think using Vmix with a 1080x1920 resolution is a good idea, because there is way more space for input windows. Is there a chance to make the minimum with for Vmix 1080 or at least 1200 pixels?

It does make sense to have 1 portrait and 1 landscape as the landscape one can be used to show the fullscreen display with preview and output on, and then the portrait one listing all the outputs. It seems unnecessary to have the preview and output panes on the main display when the fullscreen view can display them.
