    Hi,

    I have some UI elements based around the Shapes plugin and Rect Transforms. I have an editor script monitoring for user changes to the Rect in both OnInspectorGUI() and OnSceneGUI(), which propagates values to the Shapes components so the UI element can be arranged in real time using the Rect controls.

    However the scripts do not detect when the RectTransform is modified externally by a Grid Layout Group, for example because neither callback is called in that case and I can't find one that is.

    Short of using Update is there any way to get notified when a component's RectTransform is modified externally?
