Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Selecting multiple actors via the shift key

I have an issue where I can no longer select multiple actors while shift or ctrl key is pressed. Could I have somehow accidentally turned off the selection possibility and where could I turn it back on again? I'm using a mac.

Thanks for the help

Hey Henrip,

You can select multiple actors using the Shift key unless they are BSP brushes, in which case that will select a face of the brush and change its material. You need to use the Command key on the Mac to select multiple Actors including BSPs. We used to use both the Ctrl and Cmd keys for this, but in 4.3 or 4.4 we switched to the Mac standard of using Cmd for most instances in which a PC would use Ctrl.

You can also use marquee select in Orthographic views to select multiple Actors, or Shift+Cmd+Option plus dragging with the LMB in Perspective view.

Hope that helps!
