2D Sprite Editor bones aren't visible in scene

    Hello.
    I started animating some 2D sprites. So i imported a .psb file, sliced it into the needed parts, inserted some bones and gave the parts bone influence and can animate easily in the pose preview.
    Then I saved the sprite and dragged it into the scene. In video tutorials the bones are showing up in the scene, but in my case they just show up for some milliseconds while i click (on the sprite or anywhere else in the scene).
    How do I let them be visible all the time, so i can animate in the scene?

    Thanks for your time :)

    Hi, make sure your "Gizmos" button in SceneView's toolbar is toggled in.
    Cheers

    Any chance you can file a bug report and attach your sprite/project? That will help us figure out the issue fastest.

    This SAVED MY LIFE <3

    It will probably confuse everyone, because the bones sometimes appear when gizmos is off, so when the bones suddenly stop appearing, panic ensues, so I recommend making this more consistent!

    Once rigged your sprite, place it in the scene. Then add SpriteSkin script into it. Click on create bones and you'll get the rigged bones of your sprite, ready to animate.
