Dragging sprite assets into the hierarchy window deletes their parent GameObject




Priority: 4Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 2Core functionality majorly impacted

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached project's scene "TestScene".
2. MultiSelect sprites and drag them to hierarchy parenting to "Sprite Parent".
3. "Create New Animation" window pop ups - press cancel.
4. "Sprite Parent" and all children gets destroyed and undo does not work.

Reproduced with 5.3.1f1 (cc9cbbcc37b4)

Note: Dragging multiply sprites to the scene view and cancelling new animation creation results in an error in the console: "Failed to create animation for dragged object".

    Yes i agree, faced this situation myself.

    Any solution for getting the gameobjects back?

    I may not be able to update unity soon.
