Minion bar disappears with too many different minions at 1920*1080

After googling this seems to be an older issue, but now with the new My Pet Dungeon dlc it is ever more obvious.
When I get too many different minions my minion bar just disappers until I reduce the UI size to small enough that the minions show up again, but the UI becomes a pain to click.

Not Fixable

The UI scale setting is incredibly unstable, I recommend trying to find a sweet spot when the UI doesn't disappear and sticking to that scale.

I know this isn't optimal but the way the setting is implemented makes this near impossible to fix.

I don't get it, the unfixable part and my game suddenly deciding to load the minion bar scroll function.
Upon a reload today for the first time this week the minion bar did show at 83% ui scale with a scroll function, and I assume there hasn't been a patch for this overnight.
So there is already a built-in scroll function for the minion bar, so why isn't that function kicking in when there are too many different minions for me most of the time?

Sorry I wasn't very clear about the cause.

In the last patch we changed the way that the UI portraits scale when you have a large variety of units. When you reach the maximum of this scale and have the UI shrunk it will briefly exceed the max size of the bar and disappear. As you have found you can work around this by finding a sweet spot on the UI scale.

I notice that this thread is from five years ago, but the UI problems seems to persist.

I've reduced the UI size to ~80% and at times, when the amount of creatures extends over the bar, the Units bar doesn't allow scrolling. Randomly it has either fixed itself through time or I've just tried ignoring it, or I've set the UI scaling back to 100% to enable the scrolling again.

I haven't noticed it there's specific maps that this occurs on or if it's by chance.

Mmmm. We put in a fix for this in Patch 2.1. 

I can't make the bar disappear at all anymore and when the scroll button is missing all my units are visible in the panel (although the last one at 80% scaling does indeed hang over the edge a little but it's still visible and usable (not enough of a problem for me to try and get code resource back to fix it)

Are you sure you have more unit types than the panel supports?
