Unity 2018.1 Doesn't Pick Up Asset Icons in Gizmos?

    Unity 2017 and earlier automatically apply an icon "MyAssetType Icon" in the Gizmos folder to assets of MyAssetType. This doesn't appear to be the case in 2018.1, and icons can only be associated through the script's Select Icon menu.

    Is this the case, or am I missing something?

    I remember a live stream were one of the unity dev people said doing this was a work around that wasn't suppose to work for the public - I could be wrong in that though. saying this, having icons is incredibly useful

    Thanks. It's not a big deal, more just a point of curiosity. It's no trouble to associate it through the Select Icon menu.

    does this method work for scriptable objects? I was under the impression it did not
