    Is there a shortcut for deleting gameobjects after being selected on the scene view?

    having to select a object in the scene, then searching the highlighted object in the hierarchy and then right click and delete becomes a slow workflow once the hierarchy list is big.


    I wish it was like on blender, you select a object and then press X and the object is deleted.

    The Delete key deletes stuff, atleast one Windows. Also, selecting a GameObject in the scene should be making your hierarchy window focus on the selected entry.

    Delete (mac might be Cmd+Backspace) keyboard shortcut has existed since forever in Unity.

    i'm on windows 11 unity 2022.1 and the delete key does nothing,


    edit: " supr " key works, (which is the spanish version of delete)

    i was thinking that the backspace key was the delete key this whole time :oops:

    Cmd + Backspace, i.e. standard macOS shortcut used in all apps
