Scene view overlays#

Global overlays#

You can press the tilda key `, which is the default shortcut to bring up the menu. Alternatively, right-click on the Scene tab and select Overlay Menu, then enable the tool you would like to display.

Shift` toggles all the overlays for a Scene view.

Tool overlays#

Certain overlays appear when certain objects are selected. The particle system overlay only appears when an object with a Particle System is selected. If your overlay is designed with specific types of objects in mind, try selecting one.
If the Inspector has been locked it may prevent new objects being inspected for the overlay.

In rare cases you may need to reset the window or layout to get the overlay back.
