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"

The editor currently provides two version control providers, Perforce and Subversion. Each have their benefits and drawbacks, so its worth researching which suits your needs in the long term. Of course, you can switch later on, but from the sounds of it either option would suit your team size.

Before working with source control you will need to set up either a Perforce workspace or a Subversion 'working copy' local to your machine. Check out the numerous resources already available on the web for more info about these concepts.

You access version control settings via the small red/yellow/green icon in the top-right of the editor (or via the "File->Connect To Source Control..." menu option). Enter your credentials to connect to your source control server. You should then be able to right-click on items in the content browser to perform source control operations on them via the context menu, as well as use the "File->Submit To Source Control..." menu option to perform bulk check-ins.

i have run both perforce and subversion, over all i prefer subversion but that's simply a matter of personal preference.

if you want to set up perforce the guide i found to be the easiest is.
