Source Dock

Source Dock 0.4.0


New Member
My apologies if this is covered somewhere I have tried looking everywhere. Is it possible for me to copy and paste text from the Browser Dock sources or not? I try to, and I cannot copy and paste when interacting with this plugin, but I can with OBS custom browser docks. But OBS's Custom Browser docks don't allow for audio control. I am trying to find a way to have audio control and be able to interact + copy and paste text back and forth.
Does anyone know what I am missing here? I love the plugin btw.
This is really cool however it still crashes on closing of OBS. Here's my crash log and I hope this gets fixed soon. This is on the OBS 28 update too.

There is no rush as I get you might be busy with other plugins and stuff, I just thought I'd let you know about this crashing bug I've been having. BTW I must say, your plugins are amazing!

I found the latest version to be unstable for me so I downgraded to Source Dock v0.2.4 which is the most stable version.

Encontré que la última versión era inestable para mí, así que cambié a Source Dock v0.2.4, que es la versión más estable.
how did you downgrade? I can not find the link to older versions.

@Exeldro thank you! Another quick question, is there documentation on what these are for at the bottom of Source Dock?

@autoharplive the first one changes if the top left corner of the obs window count as left side or as top side for docks, this for all 4 corners.
This allows you to have docks take up the full left side of the window for example.

I'm not able to dock my sources for my Text sources after getting it started. I get the box for the text source and I can use it and edit it, but I'm not able to make it attach to my OBS, so it always is hidden whenever I click off of it into OBS. Is there a way to fix this?
I am running into the same issue after upgrading to OBS 28 and 0.3.3

Thank you for your great plug ins and tools - I am really using most of them! (That's why my OBS needs it's time to start.)

I've got tons of scenes and sources and many docks and it's hard to find the one I'm looking for.
So is there a way to sort the source dock entries alphabetically?
Or wouldn't it be a good idea to add this functionality?

It also might be a good idea if the source dock window where you establish the docks remembered it size when you close it!


I'm a C#/.net developer and I've got a standalone app I'd love to incorporate into a dock in OBS for an integrated control. I see custom docks only seem to allow local or web html... does anyone know a way to dock a stand-alone executable in OBS?

So - reinstalled the plugin and fixed up a few other things.
Went to add all the docks I used in previous setup which was 7 screens + source selected.
Everything went fine until I altered the geometry to resize one of the screens when it crashed again (see attachment).
On restarting OBS, all my docks had disappeared.

Hello @Exeldro
Can you make it so you are able to group many text labels in 1 Dock? That would be really awesome for complicated setups. This way you can edit many labels in 1 place. Having them on multiple docks wastes space.
Thanks for you work.
