Creating a 2D plane with text on it

I’m new to Unity but I just want to create a 2D plane with some text on it that is not anchored to any 3D position in the real world (i.e. it’s just a HUD for the user).

What’s the easiest way to do this in Unity? Some sample code would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, you can create a Canvas and add text to it.
