    Hey! So I'm working on a VR project that also needs a second user to interact with UI elements on the 2D monitor.
    Everything works fine in VR (I followed the tutorial series below), but then when I add a Screen Space/Overlay canvas for desktop UI elements, and a new default event system, my desktop isn't taking input from my mouse.

    I know this has to do with the fact that I'm using two event systems (the desktop works if I disable the VR pointer), but I need both to be running/working at the same time. Is this possible? Is there a better way to do VR Pointer input so it will work?

    Thanks!
