Title: Is this feature possible in the future?
Post by: Roger Lee on December 20, 2015, 07:58:37 AM
Hi,

I love Playmaker, but there is one little thing that still makes it cumbersome for me.  Would it be possible in a future update to be able to see the name of the FSM, in the inspector, while all the components for a game object are minimized?

It's very cumbersome when you have many FSM's on a game object to figure out which FSM to roll out for editing. Even a simple tool tip over an FSM would be great.


I have attached a pic to illustrate how you can't tell what is what at times.

I agree this would be nice, but I'm not sure it's possible with the current editor API.

I was considering a workaround, where the first line of the PlayMakerFSM inspector has a foldout button, so you could collapse the inspector down to just the FSM name.

Thanks Alex.  Anyway to quickly identify the FSM name would be a great addition.   

I'll keep the faith alive...  :)

You can also use the Selection Toolbar popup to quickly select FSMs on a GameObject:

Yeah I will just have to train myself not to immediately go to the inspector.  I may find that difficult to do   :)
