Question Having a hard time with IPointerHandler

    For a while I've been working on my project, and I've recently started getting issues that are new, but very annoying when using IPointerHandler (OnPointerEnter and OnPointerExit), IDragHandler, etc..
    I use those for a variety of needs like tooltips and opening panels when UI elements are hovered.

    A while ago I had to move from rendering my main UI canvas as Screen-Space Overlay to Screen-Space Camera Mode, and I've started running into a lot of issues:
    -OnPointerEnter not being called on most of the Graphic's surface
    -OnpointerExit being called next frame directly even though nothing appeared in front of the graphic
    -OnDrag not being called under similar circonstances



    Things I've investigated:
    -Toggle off "Raycast target" on Graphics that are in front of my triggers (like a button's icon)
    -Putting buttons' icons on a different layer (like ignoreRaycast)
    -Making sure my Graphics Raycaster does not has blocking mask for those layers.
