Hi all, I've been wondering about this for a few days now, and gave up on it after not finding any answers after a fair whack of searching and just used different key controls. Essentially I have a level editor 'editor script' which allows me to grab objects, group grab, move, spawn and locks the object positions to a grid all on a very basic level which has been very useful in saving some time. Now I've been detecting input commands from the user with the Event class, along the lines of:
Which works fine, however I would really like to make it so that I can left click to select objects, or place them and press Spacebar to toggle my editor modes.
Unfortunately left click selects a scene object and Spacebar maximises the current windows viewport. What I would to do is override these controls, so that when my custom inspector (which is my level editor script) is active, it does what I define in that script, is there a way to do this?
Unity obviously has this behaviour as if you edit a terrain, your left clicks don't select the terrain or other objects, they paint textures and such. I'm just not sure if it's exposed - would kinda suck for editor scripting if not though surely?

I'm trying to do something very similar by creating an editor script that allows me to do something like Shift + Left Click on the scene to add waypoints but unfortunately this works the first time but then shift left click selects another object which changes the currently selected object. After a lot of searching I gave up as well and just went with a key combination to drop it at the mouse position.
