Open the dialog of “Find Asset References”.
(In unity, Window -> Tiinoo -> Find Pro -> Find Asset References…)

(1) “Target Type”, choose “Object”.
(2) Select the asset which you want to find its references.
(3) Choose the search range. (In “Project View” or in “Hierarchy View”?)
(4) If you choose to search in “Project View”, select the folders in the project panel of Unity, then click the “Add” button in the dialog to add them into the folder list.
If you click the “Root” button, you will add the “Assets” folder into the folder list. But if your project size is bigger than 5G, we suggest you use the “Add” button instead. Because it takes much more time to search in the “Assets” folder.
If you click the “Clear” button, it will clear the folder list.
(5) If you choose to search in “Hierarchy View”, select the game objects int the hierarchy panel of Unity, then click the “Add” button in the dialog to add them into the game object list.
If you click the “Root” button, you will add the root game objects into the game object list.
If you click the “Clear” button, it will clear the game object list.
