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"

Is canvas dying out?

Hello there. I am more comfortable with the old HUD-System (/Canvas) than with UMG and I am using it for my current project. So here is my question: Is the Canvas system going to be "deleted" and completely replaced by UMG in the future? Thanks

Hi Braindrain85,

We don't have any plans to remove the Canvas system. However, UMG is our focus as the main tool for creating HUD's in UE4, so Canvas will not receive any large feature improvements going forward. It will of course get standard bug fixes to ensure that it works properly.

Hey TJ. That is ok. I think I'll write my own features in C++... But it is good to know, that it is not going to be removed any time soon. Thank you!
