Overall Data does not work? It is not updating! Only Updates after combat! Details only updates after combat! [-overall -update -bug -refresh]
Overall data in Details! updates only after the end of a combat. This save a lot of CPU resources. If you don't know about overall data and your window only updates after combat, set to Current Segment in the segment menu (icon after the orange cogwheel). But if you want a window showing overall data in real time, you can use a custom display called "Dynamic Overall Data", right click the title bar and select it (in the right side of the panel that pops up when you right click). If you care about Overall Data, it's recommended to use two windows as Damage Done: one in overall data and another in current segment.
