    It's sad that this isn't supported. I came back to UGUI after trying UI Toolkit, where it appears the restrictions are even more severe on what can be done.

    I'm starting to understand why games written in Unity have weak UIs. It's too hard to achieve basic UI feedback effects, MPBs being one way they could be achieved.

    Disappointing Unity Technologies does nothing to solve this problem developers face for YEARS.

    Wow, incredibly rude name calling and shilling some unofficial 3rd party package. On top of that, you didn't provide any evidence that what you're linking to could even provide ability to utilize the URP SRP Batcher in the UI to batch custom materials in the UI nor with the builtin RP.

    which issue, and how does it resolve it?

    I'm pretty sure you're misunderstanding the issue and the nature of the repo you've linked.

    Unity Technologies, at least can you teach us how to accomplish this in the new UI Toolkit system?

    As of 2023, there is still no MPB for Image. Holy cow.

    I know it's not exactly material property blocks for UI, but if your goal is to have a UI material instance which does not effect the original material, here is the solution for that:

    Simply create a new material instance from the image material, then set the image's material to the new instance:

    Material mat = Instantiate(image.material);
    image.material = mat;
    mat.SetInt("_Property", 0);

    There's also some upcoming updates that makes it MUCH lighter on memory. If anyone wants to add features it would be nice to have some help.

    Sadly, I don't know anything about Editor editing and coding, and am winding down my usage of Unity... due to unforeseen circumstances (Unity's new ToS and Runtime Fee)... but if you want/need any testing help, I'm yours.

    Working on a new version that supports the full MaterialEditor feature set, I think some testing will definitely be needed :)

    Ran into this today. Not surprised by Unity's lack of action.
