I thought I’d post an install for some useful Unity Editor extensions I use all the time.
The package includes two things:
- A quick align view to object at a reasonable viewing distance function. Very useful for editing things like NGUI components. It’s a bit like the Align View To Selected menu item, combined with the F key, but makes sure you are at a useful viewing distance from the object selected.
- A list of the recently selected items so you can move backwards and forwards through the project and hierarchy view. I find this very useful when I’m trying to assign things to properties in the inspector and I accidentally click it – or have to click something or just when moving through different parts of the project or hierarchy that are hard to keep on the screen at the same time.
Focus & Align
With the mouse pointer over the scene view click on G to move to the selected object in the hierarchy. Pressing G again will flip to looking at it from the other side. The view is aligned with the forward and backwards vectors of the object.
The new recent selections window can be found under the main Unity Window menu. When you open it the recent selections in the project and hierarchy views are recorded and displayed in descending order of recency.
Give them a go, i personally cant do without them!! You can download the package from here.
