I'm writing the custom menu using MenuItem and I'm stuck trying to make scene view orthographic when 5 is pressed. What is the object or method I can use to set scene's view to orthographic (I don't mean the main camera, but the main view shown in the window).

This is a C# code of what I was trying to achieve:

[MenuItem("View/SetOrtho _5")]
static void SetOrtho() {
    var scene = ... //assign scene
    scene.setOrtho(true); //set orthographic view to the scene

This documentation is for Unity 2019, so it’s not clear whether this applies to 2018 or older, but it’s worth a shot.

The gist is

 UnityEditor.SceneView.lastActiveSceneView.orthographic = true;
