Divident included in profit and loss

Currently I’m pretty sure that dividend isn’t included investment gain/loss. I believe I was told previously that it is but had a £25 div today which hasn’t changed anything. Is this the same for others? If so is it possible to get this included as a return on investment?

I don’t think it should show in the profit/loss for an investment. you get it as cash, unless you reinvest it it’s not part of that investment any more

They are included in your overall portfolio profit/loss
