Search Project By Type

Search by Component type

Unity’s built-in project search allows searching by asset type (material, prefab, etc) but not by Component type. I’ve found it very useful to be able to search prefabs in a project by Component, since you’ll often have the same component spread out across multiple folders without some identifying name.

How to use

  1. Open the Search By Type window
  2. To search by type, simply write t: before the name of the component. You don’t need to write the entire name - it should auto-complete.

Known issues

  • This project isn’t optimized at all, so will really chug and allocate in larger projects.
  • Components in child objects won’t be searched.
  • This doesn’t search inside of Scenes either, which would be the most comprehensive thing.
