Help Wanted multiple interactors

    Hi everyone,
    I essentially have the same question of BentelAnnR:

    I was wondering which is the most correct way of managing multiple XR interactors that I want to use with the same controller.
    I want to be able to both grab objects with my hands and interact with them through the laser.
    The way in which all the tutorials and example projects do this stuff is by having multiple controllers, each one having a different interactor (one for XR Ray Interactor, one for XR Direct Interactor, one for XR Teleport), because only one interactor component can be added to an object having an XR Controller.
    So eventually the same XR Rig will have like 4 or more controllers. Is that the only correct way to realize multimodal interactions or is there another one?

    Thanks a lot

    Also looking for a solution here. The documentation says that you can toggle between multiple interaction managers but I'm not clear how.

    From Unity documentation:
    Every Scene that uses the XR Interaction Toolkit needs at least one Interaction Manager to facilitate interaction between Interactors and Interactables. By default, Interactors and Interactables reference the first Interaction Manager they find in the Scene if you don’t specify one. You can also break up larger Scenes with multiple Managers or turn specific ones on and off to enable sets of interaction.

    I've attempted to turn off and on managers and controllers separately with no success. I end up breaking something each time.

    Does anyone know how this is done?
