    Hi,
    So, I wanted to use an animation to move a UI Image upon a click. It should move along the x axis - and stay there until I click again.
    Unfortunately, after playing the animation, the position of the Image snaps back. I enabled Apply Root Motion on the Animator and disabled looping on the Animation.
    I tried the same thing with a Sphere and there everything works as expected.

    Is this a bug? Or somehow expected? Is it even a good idea to use animations for UI elements?

    I included a tiny test scene.

    Unity version is 2021.3.8f1.
