    I have a child UI object whose parent has a HorizontalLayoutGroup. I need to reparent the child to an arbitrary RectTransform that does NOT have HorizontalLayoutGroup.

    The reparenting works fine but the object Width and Height go crazy and the transform still indicates it's being controlled by HorizontalLayoutGroup (even though it's not a child of the HLG any more.)

    Here's the rect transform under the new parent:

    Any suggestions for how to keep the width and height when moving from under HorizontalLayoutGroup to not being under a layout group?

    Thanks in advance.

    Solved. Silly mistake. The new parent had a LayoutGroup on it. When I attached to a parent that didn't have a LayoutGroup it worked fine.
