UI Controlled from keyboard?

To be clear, I’m trying to prevent UGUI elements from being controlled from the keyboard. I see a lot of people trying to accomplish the opposite of this, but right now I’m having issues where scroll rects will scroll up when the up key is pressed, or horizontal rows of buttons will become selected if the left or right arrows are pressed. How do I prevent my menus from being affected by keyboard input?

this seems like something that should be easy to accomplish but it seems pretty determined to accept keyboard input.

You need to set the navigation field to “none” on UI objects you don’t want keyboard controls for.
