Issue ID




2D Light GameObjects are not shown when searching for the Light type GameObjects in the Hierarchy

Package: Scriptable Render Pipeline Universal


How to reproduce:
1. Open user's attached "test2dlights" project
2. Open the "SampleScene" Scene
3. In the Hierarchy search bar type "t: light"

Expected result: Both "Point Light 2D" and "Spot Light" are shown as a result of a search
Actual result: Only the "Spot Light" is returned as a result of a search

Reproducible with: 2019.2.0a1 (6.7.1), 2020.2.0a17 (8.1.0)
Could not test with: 2019.1.14f1 and older because 2D Lights were introduced in Lightweight RP 6.7.1 which is available in 2019.2.0a1 and later Unity version

  1. Resolution Note:

    This can't be fixed at the moment due to the fact that we need to maintain compatibility with LWRP. There are two Light2D classes right now in the package, one in the LWRP namespace, the other in the Universal namespace. That's why the type search doesn't return any result. A workaround is to use the fully qualified type name UnityEngine.Experimental.Rendering.Universal.Light2D.
