The question it's simple. Can I use to composer overlay in one scene? Ex. reading Android core app quality I realized that I need to use two overlay scenes, one for the instructions of how the user use the scene and now I see that I need to follow the Android standard UI which push me to add the 3 bar standard menu icon at left up corner in which the user can switch between scenes.

Thanks in advance

Can you simultaneously show two or more overlays? No.   

 

You can only have one overlay active at a time. 

 

 

Can you should multiple sequential overlays, one after the next or at different times, all overlaying the same scene? Yes.

Thanks @roaminggamer, I just want to have two composer overlays, one for the instructions of the UI elements in a specific scene and another one for the menu bar that contains the buttons to move across all scenes. Both overlay in the same scene but never will open simultaneously.
