Editor ISSUEs, BUGs

WHile battling these 2 issues I ran into a new one.

  1. http://answers.unity3d.com/questions/4656/rotate-with-alt-doesnt-work Although this issue remains, I believe that I found a solid go-around (see link above)

  2. http://answers.unity3d.com/questions/14070/position-camera-accurately-in-the-editor This issue is answered in the above link, but...

  3. ...while I gave it a quick test using all of the suggestions in the 3 answers given(1 is mine) the Unity Editor completely lost control:

    • I could not drag the windows back to their dock locations.
    • dragging the windows around filled the screen with window ghosts.
    • controls on the Editor windows ceased to work until I had to kill Unity and reload.
    • on reload windows in Unity still whacky, Editor unusable.

I thought all my work was gone. Corrupted scene... but I got lucky and tried the tall window layout on the layout button and the Unity Editor recovered

I am making copies of all my .unity files regularly now, in case unable to recover from these crashes.

1 and 3 are bugs and should be passed on to the Unity programming staff

.

If you drag the tab in the window back to the main tab bar, it should work (First part of your third issue)

The rest however are bugs and missing features, neither of which belong on Unity Answers - You should either bug report, or use http://feedback.unity3d.com

THIS IS MY MESSAGE THAT I TYPED IN THE HELP-REPORT PROBLEM option in Unity.

  • Please refer to the links below. I am not going to retype, paraphrase nor battle the problems of a cut and paste form the forum to this input box.
