My apologies if this has been hashed out somewhere else. I looked around but couldn't find a solution for this.

It would be nice if there was some type of OVERLAY control so you know which input is being used as an overlay. This could be something like a slight GLOW around inputs that have the 1-4 overlay button clicked. As well - there should be some type of overlay indicator in the title bar of the PROGRAM FEED. This could be something like a 1, 2, 3, 4 small indicator/icon so you know WHICH and HOW MANY overlays are currently being output.

This way, if another Video Operator walks up to the laptop, they can see you have an overlay on and look down at the INPUTS and see which input has an overlay button clicked (because it has a GLOW around it). This would make things MUCH easier to turn an overlay off quickly when you have MANY inputs.

Beside the obvious overlay indicators allready turning green ( on the inputs and in topcenter of the vMix window you could read the API XML (with smal script or even pull it with a datasource) to tell you which inputs are in which overlay and display that in a "title" input if there is realy a need for this.
