    Hey Everyone,
    Bit of a programming dummy here, so please be gentle lol. I am attempting to make a 2d rpg in Unity, and I had a health bar and Level/Exp bar set up using sliders that used to work perfectly. Now, whenever I start up my game they work fine, it's just they are out of frame. They are perfectly in frame in the scene view in the canvas, and I am just at a loss. I was recently messing around with some audio related stuff, but not too much UI, but maybe I affected something there. Any help is appreciated because I kinda wanna die rn. Thanks so much!

    what do you mean? are they outside of the visible area? If yes: make sure you anchored them correctly:

    I don't think that's the issue, it is anchored in the scene view just fine, but for some reason whenever I start the game, the health bar and everything get's shifted to the left outside of the canvas.

    that sounds very much like an anchoring problem. can you post a screenshot of the rect transform of one of your bars as well as the hierarchy?

    I see there pixel positions and pixel width and heights... so, the anchors are not set correctly. Please watch the video I posted.

    I tried anchoring it, yet I am still seeing the width and height. Is it a bug? Or is it something else? I am so lost, and quite honestly pretty mad lol.

    I feel like it's a problem with my Camera because it doesn't quite reach the edge of my bounds as well.
