I am making a simple 4-player turn-based card game. At one point, a player can "open" his hand on the table. As the player does this, I want cards to be aligned in a way such that left side of each one is visible.

In my hand, the cards look like this.

When I carry them on the table, they look like this enter image description here

Not only the order is reversed, which I wouldn't mind, but also the cards are not visible now.

This is how the green area looks like in the Inspector
enter image description here

I don't want cards to change shape to fill the area, and I also don't want them to go outside the green area.

When I unselect Control Child Size, the cards are aligned just as I want, but now they are too spread out and outside the green area.

Is there a way to achieve the behavior that I want?

The problem with the configuration is the negative spacing. The negative spacing exceeds the width of a card, and the card slides all the way back to the left side as a result.

To fix it, the spacing should be set to a value which is greater than -50 units.
