    Hi. I found that new Memory Profiler packages does not have ShortestPathToRoot and stack view of Referenced By, compared to old Memory Profiler library in Bitbucket (https://bitbucket.org/Unity-Technologies/memoryprofiler).

    Current Memory Profiler provides only "Ref Count" column to tracking reference relationship. If the objects has cycling refernce, it is very hard to track (especially, if it has same name!).

    The old version of Memory Profiler provides nice feature, like ShortestPathToRoot and stack view of Referenced By (see attahed screenshot). So it is easy to find root object or track references.

    Is there any features like this for new Mmemory Profilder package? If not, please add this features.

    Thanks.

    Hello and thank you for your feedback. :)
    Yes we are aware that this feature is missing. We're working on improving the reference tracking and getting you a performant and user friendly way to path(s) to root and better analysis of references. Also, please not the previous post on this topic: https://forum.unity.com/threads/path-s-to-root.674191/
