    We've been having an issue since updating to 2019.3 with the Edit Collider button not displaying:

    Similarly, the button is missing for editing angular limits on hinge joints:

    upload_2020-6-8_14-0-22.png

    Currently using 2019.3.0f6. I've seen people on forums reporting that this is a bug in 2019.3, but I've been unable to find out whether there was a fix released in a later version. Before getting the team to update, can anyone confirm that there has been a fix? If not, is there another solution?

    Thanks.

    I actually found that I could get around it by entering Play Mode with the object selected - the button would reappear while playing, so I would then edit it to the values I wanted. Sometimes the button would even remain after doing this. Good luck!

    I'll be damned. That actually worked. The values would not remain after exiting play mode but the button stuck around so I could edit it again. Nice catch!

    Yeah, far from ideal though! Would love to get an update from Unity about it.

    @cirocontinisio maybe?

    Still a bug in 2021.2.5

    As a workaround, you can switch to the default layout and the button will show up.

    This fixed it for me. Click the Layout dropdown in the top right of Unity editor and select default.

    I did this exact thing here is where you switch to default layout and the button will show up as he said.

    I ha
    I have had this happen multiple in the past month and doing this fixed it. Today I had enough and figured out it was caused by having multiple inspector tabs/windows open, so closing all except one in my custom layout fixed the button permanently. It seems to be some kind of a Unity bug.

    still exists in 2021 LTS.... i think its related to all the other inspector bugs (i.e. drawing the first element of an array of dropdowns renders below the list) bc clicking it highlights both the top 2 inspector fields: https://gyazo.com/c1cf7505ccb8c509040b6cb15b0d5246

    temporary solution: go to the top right menu in the editor and reset the layout, it should fix it but its still annoying

    Resetting the editor layout doesn't fix it for me. I can't edit colliders in my project. on 2020.3.30

    There is a workaround. For me it worked by adding Capsule Collider 2D instead of Box Collider 2D

    Sometimes the button gets bugged when you switch between normal and debug inspector. Put all your inspector tabs on normal mode and close all of them. Open a new inspector tab and the button will be visible again.

    I'm having this issue using Unity 2021.3.4f1
    I've tried several of the suggested solutions in this thread (except switching to a different collider), and I'm unable to get it to appear.



    So as it turns out, this is by design. The ONE edit collider enables editing ALL of them at the same time. It's hard to see because they "stack" on top of each other, but they are all there, and you can slowly move each of them around and you'll see the "bounds" moving for each collider.

    I had the same issue in 2021.3.9f1
    Closing the inspector and reopening fixed the issue.

    I was really upset, because nothing worked, but i tried for fun click in this box collider on three dots -> Added Component -> Revert and it shows up. I can delete it and make new box collider FINALLY with edit option. Unity 2021.3.14f1
