Quick Bites 05 : Toggle ALL Scene View Gizmos

Quick Bites 05 : Toggle ALL Scene View Gizmos

In my quest to make the scene view look as pretty possible, I stumbled across another issue… After lots of development, sometimes you find your scene starts getting cluttered up with gizmos. Having 3D gizmos scaled to a suitable scale really helps but sometimes I just want to explore the scene with nothing in the way…


So here’s a way to do that! This uses some naughty Reflection based voodoo, so there’s a chance in later versions of Unity this might break. But for now, drop this in an Editor folder and press Ctrl+ALT+G to toggle all the gizmos.. When you use this with the Scene view image effects from Quick Bites 04. It looks super nice.
