Overview of the UI Anchor Resource

The UI Anchor resource attaches an anchor to an object in the scene. Anchors represent a position in the scene. This anchor should be used by UI resources, such as Screen Message or Annotation. Compared to other anchor resources, this resource provides additional optional fields that can enhance the user interaction experience with UI panels.
