    I just added the SteamVR package and the EditorXR package to my scene
    However when I try to find EditorXR under the Windows section, it is missing
    What information should I provide, I have enabled OpenVR in the SDK
    I am using an Virtual Desktop, which uses OpenVR from Steam
    Is there something I am doing wrong?

    Hi @stevecam,

    What are you looking to accomplish? The SteamVR asset store package is no longer required in Unity. However, you do need to have the proper OpenVR plugin for the HMD to operate.

    Sorry, I am new to using plugins however the process seems very logical to me

    I am attempting to view EditorXR through my headset
    The OpenVR plugin you are referring to, I just thought that SteamVR plugin from in the asset store was what I required there

    What I am doing
    I am using Unity 2019.2.12f1
    I import EditorXR 1.3 in to my project
    I import TextMesh Pro
    I import SteamVR from the asset store
    I enable OpenVR in my player preferences

    When I press Ctrl+E on the keyboard nothing happens, I also don't see any mention of EditorXR in the Window menu

    I feel as if I'm missing something
    I want to document the experience for others who use AltSpaceVR to share their worlds and that version of Unity is required for the uploader tool to work, there is a benifit for others to be able to view their worlds and possibly edit them in a tool like EditorXR and to be honest, it looks like a lot of hard work has gone in to writing EditorXR

    Look forward to your reply
    Regards
    Stephen

    Thank you for sharing more @stevecam. Let's see if we can figure this out. When you say you have imported EditorXR 1.3 (I think you mean 0.3.0 btw) where did you download / import that from?

    A separate test to make sure your VR setup is working - if you create a new scene, put a cube in it, and hit Play does the VR headset track properly. In other words, can you look around and see the cube?

    My bad, I am using EditorXR 0.30 from http://rebrand.ly/EditorVR-package

    My headset is also tracking properly with an empty cube in a new scene, thank you for that
    It appears that importing the extra's package for TMP was my mistake, removing and starting again resolved the issue

    Hopefully this helps somebody else
