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"

Multi Line Editable Text Box, stuck to one line 4.5

Want to display a paragraph of information to users. Created a Multi-Line Editable Text Box and pasted in the text field but it still constrains to one really long line.

Looking through all the options I don't see how MultiLineEditableTextBox is any different from just EditableTextBox.

Am I missing something or is the tool just not finished?

Hey ProfQuest2-

Is this something you're seeing when entering text into the text box through the editor or when you use the text box ingame (more like chat window).

Via the editor. Was hoping there would be an Auto Wrap-Text check box like in the TextBlock tool.

I have a similar problem. I want to "Set Text" in the Text box with a Text (chat System) but I have not found the possibility to make a new line.

Hey guys-

I have confirmed that the multi line editable text box does not wrap text to a new line both in editor and have submitted this bug to our internal tracking system (UE-4632) for further investigation.

Any update on this? I too need multiline text block to be able to handle \n or \r\n

Update: found a workaround here https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/78437/blueprint-drawtext-append-string.html
