Prefab Variant's right-click menu does not have the expected"Apply to *** Prefab" options for individual fields

Issue #511 resolved
Richard Baxter created an issue

I'm not sure if this is a feature request or a 'bug' but it's a problem that is affecting my workflow and is overriding a pretty important feature of Unity's new prefab setup I think.

When using Odin, the right click menu has context buttons for Copy/Paste

However, with Odin disabled there are "Apply to Prefab" buttons that are very useful in normal workflow

I would say that the Apply options on a field-by-field basis is pretty important. There are workarounds but it is a hassle to apply the whole Component, go into the prefab editor, or go to the prefab root object (in this case it's a child object so I'd have to select the parent, go into the override menu at the top, select the field, apply that... it's a hassle)

So, maybe a feature request, I think it's a bug since it removed expected functionality of Unity's.

Either way, could we have those options back? :)

    Should be, yes - though I'm not sure when 2.0.18 will come out. Fixing this bug led me into a rather deep rabbit hole by necessity, which saw some much-needed refactoring, optimizations and fixes in PropertyTree's path lookup methods - which were the ultimate cause of the issue.

    Hey just checked out 2.0.19.0 and the context menu is still the same (“Apply to Prefab …“ option not there).

    EDIT: also the blue lines on the sides indicating a prefab change aren’t there… maybe this is related?

    EDIT: EDIT: Later found out that the blue line issue was because of a custom drawer, but the right click option is still gone, also for simple types and default editors.

    Will the fix be applied in a later version?

    Kind regards,
    Jan
