  • copying a range of array or list elements to the Geek Clipboard,
  • copying all array or list elements to the Geek Clipboard,
  • pasting array or list elements available in the Geek Clipboard into an array or list,
  • copying either a locked element range or unlocked range (based on a clicked index),
  • cutting a range of array or list elements and placing them in the Geek Clipboard,
  • inserting array or list elements available in the Geek Clipboard into an array or list at a clicked index,
  • appending array or list elements available in the Geek Clipboard after a clicked index in an array or list,
  • duplicating a range of array or list elements – once and many times,
  • deleting a range of array or list elements,
  • setting and resizing a range of array or list elements,
  • different operation modes such as a locked or unlocked element range mode,

HOW TO USE IT

For the purpose of this documentation the term “right-click” will be used as the operation opening a context menu.

You can open one of the context menus containing Geek Productivity Commands by:

  1. Right-clicking on an array or list element name (not a value). In some versions of Unity it is also possible to right-click on the array/list name itself – in this case it assumes that the clicked element index is zero. 4AI Geek Context Menu is appended to the standard Unity context menu items.
  2. Right-clicking on a selection in the Hierarchy View to open a context menu with COPY commands.
  3. Opening the GameObject menu to open a context menu with COPY commands.
  4. Right-clicking on a selection in the Assets view to open a context menu with COPY commands.

GameObject Menu COMMANDS

4AI → COPY

Uses a default COPY command to copy game objects or selection using a specific object order. After the installation the default COPY command is: “COPY Selected GAME OBJECTS – HIERARCHY ORDER”. It can be changed by creating another class similar to DefaultGameObjectCopyExecutor, but this feature is not documented and is not guaranteed to be used in the future. Use it at your own risk.

4AI Geek Copy (submenu)
  • COPY Selected GAME OBJECTS – HIERARCHY ORDER
    COPY selected GAME OBJECTS to the Geek Clipboard, ordered as in the Hierarchy view.
  • COPY Selection
    COPY Selection to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets. If objects are selected one by one, copied objects usually have the selection order, but it is not guaranteed.
  • COPY Selection – Alphanumeric SORT by NAME

    COPY Selection to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets. Copied objects use “alphanumeric sort by name”, so any numbers in the name are not sorted as strings. For example, sorting the names “Abc1, Abc10, Abc2” will give “Abc1, Abc2, Abc10” because 1 < 2 < 10.

  • COPY Selection – SORT by NAME

    COPY Selection sorted by name to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets.

Geek Context Menu Addons

Assets Menu COMMANDS

4AI → COPY

Uses a default COPY command to copy selection (usually assets) using a specific object order. After the installation the default COPY command is: “COPY Selection – Alphanumeric SORT by ASSET PATH”. It can be changed by creating another class similar to DefaultAssetsCopyExecutor, but this feature is not documented and is not guaranteed to be used in the future. Use it at your own risk.

4AI Geek Copy (submenu)
  • COPY Selection – Alphanumeric SORT by ASSET PATH

    COPY Selection to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets. Copied objects use “alphanumeric sort by asset path”, so any numbers in the asset path are not sorted as strings. For example, sorting the asset paths “Dir/Abc1, Dir/Abc10, Dir/Abc2” will give “Dir/Abc1, Dir/Abc2, Dir/Abc10” because 1 < 2 < 10.

  • COPY Selection – Alphanumeric SORT by NAME

    COPY Selection to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets. Copied objects use “alphanumeric sort by name”, so any numbers in the name are not sorted as strings. For example, sorting the names “Abc1, Abc10, Abc2” will give “Abc1, Abc2, Abc10” because 1 < 2 < 10.

  • COPY Selection

    COPY Selection to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets. If objects are selected one by one, copied objects usually have the selection order, but it is not guaranteed.

  • COPY Selection – SORT by ASSET PATH

    COPY Selection sorted by asset path to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets.

  • COPY Selection – SORT by NAME

    COPY Selection sorted by name to the Geek Clipboard. You can use it to copy both selected game objects and assets.

LIST & ARRAY SINGLE COMMANDS

SET range START and LOCK

SET the array or list range START to clickedINDEX so that the final range is <clickedINDEX, END> and is LOCKED. See the LOCK range command for more information.

SET range END and LOCK

SET the array or list range END to clickedINDEX so that the final range is <START, clickedINDEX> and is LOCKED. See the LOCK range command for more information.

LOCK range

LOCK the range <clickedINDEX, R>. If you execute a command such as MOVE range by N or SHIFT range by N on a LOCKED range, the whole range will be moved or shifted by N too. When you have a LOCKED range, you can click on any array / list item and it will not have any effect on the range a given command will use. The range will be equal to <START, END>.

UNLOCK range

Unlocks the range, which means that the current range will be recalculated based on the current clickedINDEX and current range size R. If you click at a different array or list element, the range will start at that element. The related context menu item is available when the range is LOCKED.

RELOCK range

UNLOCK the range <START, END> and LOCK the range <clickedINDEX, clickedINDEX+R-1>, so that the new range size is unchanged, but the START is equal to clickedINDEX. The related context menu item is available when the range is LOCKED.

LOCK ALL

LOCK the whole range of a given array or list. If you execute a command such as MOVE range by N or SHIFT range by N on a LOCKED range, the whole range will be moved or shifted by N too. When you have a LOCKED range, you can click on any array / list item and it will not have any effect on the range a given command will use. The range will be equal to <START, END>.

COPY ALL items

COPY all array or list items to the GEEK CLIPBOARD.

COPY ALL and LOCK range

COPY all array or list items to the GEEK CLIPBOARD and LOCK the whole array / list range.

COPY ONE item

COPY ONE clicked item to the GEEK CLIPBOARD.

COPY range

COPY the range <clickedINDEX, clickedINDEX+R-1> to the GEEK CLIPBOARD.

COPY range LOCKED

COPY the LOCKED range <START, END> to the GEEK CLIPBOARD.

The related context menu item is available when the range is UNLOCKED.

CUT range

CUT the range <clickedINDEX, clickedINDEX+R-1> so that it is copied to the GEEK CLIPBOARD and deleted.

The related context menu item is available when the range is UNLOCKED. The calculated range must be regular and must fit in the array or list.
