    Found out that RectTransform.localPosition doesn’t work anymore in 2017.3.1p2
    if you need to position something in the UI

    RectTransform.anchoredPosition works to position something in the UI

    I like to know why suddenly localPosition didn't work anymore?

    Can someone verify if this is true? I thought this still works.

    Bumping this as i have the same issue - reading a RectTransform's localPosition in script does not give the same position as i can read at the very same moment in the inspector, this being with achors set to to left corner

    Edit: As festival says, using RectTransform.anchoredPosition works fine, and it works just the way one would expect .localPosition to work.
