I have a C# script with a public property:

List<Sprite> someSprites;

I would like to add 20 sprites to it, from the inspector window. However, it seems like the only way to do so is to drag one by one. Is there a simpler way to batch fill lists in Unity?

There are two ways to assign multiple objects:

  1. Editor: Click on the object you want to assign items to. In the top-right of the inspector window, click on the lock icon. Select the objects you want to assign and drag them into the field. Once done un-click the lock icon.

  2. Code: Assign it using someSprites = Resources.LoadAll<Sprite>("Location"); inside Awake().

    \$\begingroup\$ Also worth noting, if you're trying to add your own objects to a list in the inspector, you'll need to make sure they have the attribute serializable \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ For the first one, if you drag & drop them, they seem to be ordered alphabetically, rather than the order of the dragged objects. Is there a workaround that? \$\endgroup\$
