As a multimedia creator (Blender, Photoshop, Premiere) being able to use my mouse (and move across various windows while doing so) is a must. I was really hoping to be able to create directly while I'm VR, unfortunately this doesn't seem possible with the current iteration.

I can understand when we pull an app off the desktop into virtual space that might be difficult, but if we are working in core, it's a pain to have to switch between using the controllers and the keyboard.

Some way to select both single click and right mouse button click is needed. Quite a few apps like Teamspeak3 need you to be able to right click on a channel to select 'join'.

Oh you can use the right mouse button. Just press and hold the trigger or A button on the touch controller until the rectangle pops up. Release and see the right mouse button click 🙂

You also can't drag select anything in chrome, it just drag scrolls, yet drag scroll is mapped to the right joystick anyway so I'd like an option.

I'd love this to be added i like playing normal 2d apps on my rift using "big screen" but the quality cant even get close to what the new update has its crystal clear (compared to big screen) i'd love to also have some sort of command to hide the dashboard

indeed, atlease make it visiable when we see full screen desktop. Keyboard shortcuts are a plus 🙂

It would be nice to be able to have a more direct mouse emulation in desktop apps. This could bring the ability to play 2d games with mouse view on a big screen using your touch controllers.

Not sure if you knew this but you can set your mouse pointer to have a "short trail" and it will then show up on your VR desktop. I'm not sure if that's intentional or not but the setting is in your control panel.

Some people (like me) use Rift while sitting at a desk with a HOTAS, keyboard and mouse. Using a touch controller in combination with this environment is extremely impractical. Can options to use keyboard and mouse to control the dash and desktop functions be implemented?

'+1 for pointer trails, it is a perfectly fine solution.
