    Store your favorite assets, and access them from this nifty collection.
    Break Prefabs
    A command which completely disconnects a prefab from its source.

    Customized Shortcut
    You can easily set a shortcut to open HOTools (or no shortcut at all) via the Settings Tab.

    New HOTools update: v1.0.101:

    New Features
    - The "Create Components Icons" panel is now the new "Set/Reset Objects Icons" panel, which allows to set icons also for GameObjects and Prefabs, and without using the Gizmos folder
    Bugfixes
    - Fixed log error when dragging a favorite right after selecting it

    Submitted to the Asset Store, should be online in a couple days.

    I really liked this editor. It comes with source?

    If you put it in the Asset Madness for 10usd it's an insta-buy!

    Hi Paulo,

    HOTools comes without source, since I greatly prefer to work with assemblies (both because they're more manageable, and because package updates are way easier - I do that with HOTween too, which is free and open-source on Google Code). Anyway, I collected all the re-usable code I created and are adding it to a growing open-source library on Google Code: HOUnityLibs. And if you find any bug I'll quickly squash them (a thing I assume I proved with my HOTween support ;)).

    About the Asset Madness, I have no idea about how to participate in it, since it's rather obscure, but I'd want to. That said, since you mentioned it, I just lowered the price to 10$. Just have to wait one or two days for the Unity team to accept the change :)

    EDIT: for anyone who bought HOTools at 15$, I will offer "compensation" :) More on the post I'll write when Unity will accept the new price.

    Thats why I want your package so much! HoUnityLibs lacks documentation but I can feel it's power! I really want to use it in my editor scripts! Thats why I want the source of HoTools, to see how you used HoUnityLibs.

    Anyway, just bought for 15 bucks :)

    I have just installed HOTools and when I try to drag anything to favourites Unity crashes and I have to force quit!

    Any idea what's wrong?
