    I'm trying to move the pivot point of a UI object. The point does not move.

    Could be the same problem I had; it turned out I couldn't move the pivot because I had "Center" active instead of "Pivot" in the top bar in Unity (next to the move, rotate scale tools).

    When center is active, the indicator for the pivot will instead indicate the objects center, exactly as for ordinary gameobjects.

    Thank you everyone! It's nice to know that I could be of assistance, but at the same time it's too bad that so many people are experiencing the same issue.

    I hope that Unity will improve their documentation or consider changing the functionality in the future to avoid confusion.

    Thanks a lot, there definitely should be a change in UI when we switch from pivot to center.
