RiderFlow 2022.1 Help

Scene view management toolbar

RiderFlow adds a new toolbar for Scene view management, with the following tools:

  • The first is a search tool. It is similar to Search Everywhere but serves a different purpose. For one thing, it will only show assets that you can use in the scene. For another, the search window stays open and allows you to drag assets from your search results directly into the scene.

  • Then we have camera presets. Quickly save the current camera position as a preset. Just give it a name and a keyboard shortcut will be automatically assigned to it.

  • Switch between them using either the toolbar or the keyboard shortcut.

  • Bookmarks provide you with a similar method for jumping between GameObjects. Any bookmarks set in the Hierarchy view can be accessed quickly in the toolbar, making it easy to jump to your favorite objects.

The settings of these tools are stored in the Assets\RiderFlow.UserData folder, which means they can be shared with the whole team.
