    In earlier versions than Unity 2018.3, the editor provided a "Revert" button for Prefab Instances. This button is missing in 2018.3 and I wonder how do I revert changes in a prefab instance to the original settings stored in the prefab?

    I also can't seem to find the "GameObject > Break Prefab Instance" menu item in 2018.3. Was it moved or removed?

    1) Overrides -> Revert All
    2) right click -> Unpack Prefab / Unpack Prefab Completely

    Could anyone tell me please, what is "1) Overrides -> Revert All" - this is a menu or what?

    It is a drop-down that appears in the inspector when you select a prefab.

    And in case you don't know what to right click for breaking a prefab instance (took me a while to get it) that is on the prefab instance in the hierarchy.

    Overrides is still in the same place. Unpacking is still done in the hierarchy but the prefab options are in a "prefab" submenu now.
