    I was noticing the difficulty I was having - re positioning my Photoshop layout to my Unity UI per milometer.

    Is this strictly the territory of 3rd party vendors? Snap to Grids / Layout tools.

    Or am I missing something?

    I just thought, why is it Not there?

    Currently you can snap the rects of UI elements to each others' sides or centers if they're siblings of the same parent. UI elements also snap their their parent sides and center.

    Snapping in a UI system that has support for stretching and other dynamic behaviors is a bit more tricky than snapping in a completely static layout, but we've attempted to find a good compromise.
