Streamlabs Game Overlay resets position every restart

Not exactly sure what’s going on here, but the position doesn’t properly save whenever I move the overlay. I always have it in the top right of my screen so it’s out of the way. It stays the same if I toggle it on and off, but not if I close StreamlabsOBS. It’s mildly annoying to have to move back every time, and I’ve looked through settings and seen nothing to keep it from resetting the position.

Hey again, 

In this case, it may be best to reinstall Streamlabs OBS making sure it is installed to your C drive.

Hi @TheDarkestShado,

If this is for your game overall, you need to make sure you toggle the “positioning mode” <https://prnt.sc/s8xdxv> to show <https://prnt.sc/s8xe2v> the events and chat before closing and restarting Streamlabs OBS. If that does not work, try toggling off the game overlay, toggle it back on, then reset your hotkeys to different keys. <https://prnt.sc/s8xdd6>

Also, try closing Streamlabs OBS and then right-clicking it and choosing to run it as an administrator. 

 

I tried all of the above and there has been very little change. Running as administrator seems to allow the chat to keep its position, but not the event log.
