AssetReference can't be drag and dropped on the variable name

EDIT: this only happens with AssetReference so it's probably an addressable bug

variable name

public List obs;
drag and drop an object on obs
before = add a new item to obs
now = nothing

why it's important:

  • muscle memory, even if it can be overriden with [ ] that would force a choice between ordering and muscle memory, losing what is announced as an upgrade
  • avoiding software decay

solution:
turn drop on variable name into add function

This is not a regression as far as I can tell. It never used to work with an AssetReference array/list, or to be more precise, it also doesn't work with Unity 2018.4.

Wow, more than a year have past and still not possible to drop a set of addressable objects to the list/array of
AssetReferences... (2021.2.5f1, Addressables package 1.19.13)

Probably Unity keep this feature for another loud announcement :)

2022 and still doesn’t work :slight_smile:

It seems Unity gave up finishing all the started instruments. Addressables, Input module, proper UI. They just rushing to announce more and more new features, which will also never be finished and be ready to use without tons of workarounds and manual labor...
