How can i display document library in my root site collection in subsites. One way i found here , its not working as aspected. When i select a view/source and create the webpart in top site gallery and added it on a subsite, it dosent display the fields from the view i selected. And just displays: Name, MOdified, MOdified by, and none of the other fields from the selected view... enter image description here

If i delete the webpart from my subsite, and add it again, i can se my fields from the view, but only when iam in "Edit page" mode. As soon as i save the page, or go out from the "Edit page" mode webpart displays as pic above. In Edit Mode enter image description here

What i want to acchieve is to display document library from my root site in all subsites. Is there any other good way to do that?

You should use Content Query Webpart.

Add the webpart into the subsite and then use the webpart properties to configure the list you want to display.
