Introduction

Here's an asset package of useful utilities to simplify Unity scene editing. I use them every day in my game development and hope they'll be useful to other developers. Feel free to use & modify them. If you do so, please let me know, especially if you find any bugs or improvements.

Usage

Use the [GOE] menu options, or the assigned shortcuts, to activate each utility command. Some actions require a gameobject to be selected beforehand.

Overview of menu options

Note: It's recommended to get familiar with the shortcuts, because they'll save heaps of time whilst editing scenes.
