I'm sure there has to be a simple answer to this, but frankly I cannot find anything about it anywhere on the internet, so I'm asking here. How do I add a pointer like this hand to the side of the currently selected UI button in my game?
I tried using Unity's built in UI system to do this, using the "sprite swap" feature that changes sprites based on whether or not the button is currently selected. I made an image for my "Play" button, and then an image for when the play button was selected that included a pointer as part of the image, but the image would either resize when the button was selected, or the image was moved to the right to accommodate Unity's centering mechanic on the UI. Perhaps this wasn't so wrong, and I'm just not using the UI system correctly.
Does a feature like this have to be hard coded into the UI design?
