    Added:
    - Separate hierarchy helper script : https://github.com/UnityCommunity/U...Scripts/2D/Tilemaps/TileMapHierarchyHelper.cs (get icons from here)
    - Can arrange layer order with those small arrows (because sometimes its difficult when you try to drag&drop arrange gameobjects, they get accidentally parented etc..)
    - Displays custom icon for tilemap gameobjects (green if gameobject is active)

    Just for testing so far, not sure if it needs icon, and still thinking if/how locking a layer would do..

    This is great, I'm surprised they haven't integrated this into their own build! Wow.

    Updated the source in original post link^

    - Fixed: Keyboards event were all eaten/used, now only for those keys that are used
    - Added: Press G to toggle between Framed, PixelPerfectZoom, HalfWayZoom (at mouse position) *currently pixelPerUnity ratio is set fixed to 16 (would need to take that from tilemap sprites)

    Ill later change that Framed, into "Fit to view" instead..

    Pressing G button to have better framing/zoom:
