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"

Get actor location node missing

Anyone know where the "get actor location" in blueprint event graph are located? Has it changed name? I can't find it when I type in the name.

There is a bug that some functions are not always shown. Try turning of "Context Sensitive" when you search the function.

Best, Eckhard

Hi pkringen,

The 'Get Actor Location' node is still part of the editor. Please try what Eckhard suggested above or go to the Window tab > click Palette > then search under the 'Find a Node' section. This should find almost every node except for the truly context sensitive ones like 'Cast To'.

Our devs are aware that there is an issue and are currently working to improve this process.

I was going crazy because I couldn't find the same nodes as people posted in their blueprints. Thank you for this. I really wish they would set "Context Sensitive" off by default, would have saved me a lot of trouble.
