Select freely in your Editor.
Overthrow the rectangle tyranny now!
This plugin enhances the selection functionality in the SceneView of the Unity Editor. It allows you to do a free form selection instead of the default rectangle (works for 3d objects and ui).
Please notice that this is an EDITOR ONLY plugin.
If you are not sure what it does then please watch the intro video below or on Youtube.
Full source code included.
I am a developer too and I don't like closed source assets.
Compatible with Unity 2017.4.0+, Unity 2018.x, Unity 2019.x, ...
It may work with earlier versions too but I haven't tested it.
