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"

[Closed] [Request] Add Pin option for Macros

It will be cool if we can create a Add Pin (both input and output) option to our custom macros.

Hi Satheesh,

Thank you for your feedback. I have a few questions to clarify how this would work. When you click an Add Pin on your macro, how would the type of pin be specified? How would it know where to connect the pin within the macro? What additional functionality would this give you over going into the macro and adding a new input in the details manually?

Thanks!

Alexander

Am sorry Alex. Just now only i realized this is something not doable. Sorry for the request. Please ignore this request.

Think of this as an 'add input pin array' Could add functionality as if it were an array of a specified type that could be called the same way a normal array would be called.

This would allow us to run a loop or something on those pins without needing to specify a default number of inputs.

There are a lot of nodes that have this functionality that have been written by programmers. I don't think it would be a problem to expose it to the blueprint designers.

Hi Divo,

This post is an archived post from our Beta before we launched UE4. I'm going to close this thread to prevent anyone else from commenting on an archive post.

Thanks!

Tim
