In an effort to improve the 3D Eyewear authoring experience, we are developing a 3D Panel container widget. However, it was mistakenly included with the 9.0.0 release, and should not be used, as it is not functional. We are actively working on and verifying a fix for this issue and will update this post when it is available.
Thanks for letting us know. Could you give some insight what this widget will do?
Will it enable the authors to group widgets and move them together? Maybe billboarding with multiple labels will work with this.
Your comments are on the right track 🙂
We found that 3D eyewear authors want to create user interfaces in 3D space from a group of widgets. The panel will allow hololens widgets to be grouped together. The panel will also provide a background color to make sure widgets don't blend into the background. Future iterations of the panel allow the panel to "follow the user" and be pinned to a space
@whity are you currently authoring any 3D eyewear experiences?

Thanks for your reply. I think this is will be a really helpful thing. In previous experiences I tried billboarding of labels and having a colored square in behind. Unfortunately the square will come before the text when you change your point of view. This possibly will be solved with the 3D container.
Currently I am both working on eyewear experiences and on tablet solutions.
I have no HMD for testing, but this works on my mobile device.
Does this fit you need?
Hi @dsgnrClarK ,
that gif looks pretty neat. I think I described the problem wrong.
It is difficult to have several text lines in front of card board.
When aligning it looks like this:
But after activating billboarding & always on top and changin the perspective, it looks like this:
But I think the 3D-Container should solve the problem.
3D-container is on its way.
Nevertheless, 3D SVG Widget is not visible in Vuforia Studio Canvas, difficult to manipulate (size, location).
Also, the SVG Codes is only accessible by text editor, not very convenient.
And, even if 3D-Container is available, 3DLabel won't wrap text still.
