    **DISCLAIMER** This is an early survey only, no actual feature or timeline is implied or guaranteed.

    Hi there! We are beginning explorations for a "right-click menu" in the Scene View. Meaning, the fairly standard ability to right-click (or other shortcut) in the Scene View, and see a menu appear with contents matching the context.

    The intent here is to gather basic expectations and general feedback, before considering further. If enabled, this would be a major UX change for Unity, and we want to ensure everyone has a chance, early on, to discuss this.

    Please take a few minutes to fill out the short survey HERE, and use this thread for discussion. Thank you for your time and input!

    All your presenting is to take what we already can do by right clicking the asset (lets say a rock), in the hierarchy and making it easier by just right clicking the object itself in-scene. Im not opposed to this idea, as other progs do this.

    I feel im not understanding exactly what your goal is. Does this mean the right click in the hierarchy will be removed, and only accessable from right clicking the object in-scene?. Maybe showing an example would better help people understand what you are presenting.

    Hi Warthos :) I'm keeping it fairly general on purpose here, to not bias answers. To clarify a bit though - this is adding a new feature, not changing or removing others. The main benefit being to artists, who could now interact with an item directly in their view, vs needing to move over to the hierarchy and find the item there.

    Additionally, it opens up exciting new ways to interact with items not shown in the Hierarchy - vertices on meshes, spline points, tiles, etc.

    Thanks for clarifying that. I think its a great idea to impliment, and would speed up project time, my personal one is delete, so many times i just want to click and delete (as i do in other progs), and not have to make an additional process to do so.

    Moving (not removing) the right clicking menu in the hierarchy, to a right click in-scene would be great, and then elaborating on it would really help. Love the idea, thanks for your effort, appreciated :)
