No window preview in Latte Dock. Impossible to select between multiple instances of an application

Hi, as the title expains, my Latte dock shows no preview of open windows, or any type of 'window swapper' making it impossible for me to switch between multiple open instances of an application (e.g. Alacritty, Firefox). I had a look through the configuration and couldn't find anything related to this. I assume that this should be functional out of the box by default, but maybe it requires additional setup?

Below is my system information. I'm running the Dr4gonized edition of Gaurda.

Thanks

I think the settings you're after is in the tasks tab, then near the bottom:
Left click -> I have as Present Windows
Hover -> Preview Windows (which I think is what you're after)

Of course, it's so obvious!

Life saver, thanks!
