Question Are UGUI Particles Possible?

    I have a menu screen that consists of a canvas, nothing else in the scene. I need to include some particle effects on this screen, and the only way I've been able to get it to work is to attach the particle systems to 3D game objects. This works, but, unlike the elements in the canvas, the particles do not adjust to different screen sizes. I have to manually reposition the particles to keep them positioned correctly relative to the other items in the canvas. This is not ideal.

    I can attach a particle system to a UGUI element, and it works and shows in the Scene view. But it's not visible in the Game view. I can't find any particle system settings that will make this work. Is there a way to make particles in a canvas visible in the game? Alternatively, is there any way to anchor the particles to screen points so they move with the other UI elements to accommodate different resolutions?
