We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Question about camera and canvas relationship
I am trying to create a project that has a canvas that follows my gaze as well as other text objects that spawn in certain locations within the world (specified by the gaze at a certain instance) and remain there. I am confused as to the organization and hierarchy of my Unity GameObjects and whether "Virtual Reality Supported" should be selected.
Currently I have an empty parent GameObject, which has one Canvas child with screen space - camera render mode (this is the one that will follow gaze) and another Canvas child with screen space - overlay render mode (this is the one that should stay still.) However, I am not able to spawn items to the second canvas in the current configuration.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
