    Lost a ton of engineering time and had to defer a studio-wide unity version upgrade because this (still!) makes our game unplayable. These kind of major bugs slipping QA is why we switched to using LTS, come on!

    2021.3.8 still broken, it does not appear in known issues or in the fixes section. Crazy, unnaceptable

    Had hoped it was fixed in 2021.3.8 since it was not appearing in the Known Issues, but nope.

    Have to agree with everyone else about the urgency of fixing this issue. Our UI workflow is based heavily in nested canvas, and this is a regression that causes problems with several of our player's interactions with the UI.

    Release note Know problems section for 2021.3.8f1 should be updated to indicate that the problem is still present.

    Nested canvases still not working in 2021.3.8
    If I activate and deactivate "Override sorting" in the canvas, it works.
