Auto Hide UI

Many users find it annoying having a Screen Space UI Canvas take up a massive amount of space in the scene. To work around this, the first time you select a UI object after importing Inspector Gadgets, it will ask if you want to automatically show and hide the UI layer.

  • On UI selected: show UI layer, enter 2D orthographic mode, and focus the camera on the selected object.
  • On UI deselected: hide UI layer and return camera to the previous state.
  • The UI layer will be automatically shown when you close the Unity Editor just in case the next project you open doesn’t have Inspector Gadgets. You can manually show or hide it via the Layers menu in the top right of the Unity Editor.
  • Inspector Gadgets Pro provides several options to control the conditions which trigger this feature and the way it works in the Edit/Preferences window.
