    Hi,
    I noticed that some inspectors have nice indenting on child objects or font formatting such as bold for headings to help make the inspector more organized.

    How are foldout children indented? Is this all custom style options? Or is there an easy way out of the box to do this? Using the layout groups doesn't seem to automatically help with indenting.

    Thanks.

    To indent under a foldout, I typically create a new "horizontal", space it, and then continue with a new "vertical". Something like:

    Code (csharp):
    1. GUILayout.BeginVertical();
    2. foldout = EditorGUILayout.Foldout( .. )
    3. if( foldout )
    4. {
    5.   GUILayout.BeginHorizontal();
    6.     GUILayout.Space( indentPixels );
    7.     GUILayout.BeginVertical();
    8.       GUILayout.Label("I'm indented in the foldout");
    9.       GUILayout.Label("Me too");
    10.     GUILayout.EndVertical();
    11.   GUILayout.EndHorizontal();
    12. }
    13. GUILayout.EndVertical();

    Thanks for the help! I somehow missed the GUILayout.Space call...

    It doesn’t seem to be documented that GUILayout.Space() can take an integer as a parameter. Very useful to know! Thanks
