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"

Light source angle input field stays disabled when switching a light to static

When changing a directional light from stationary to static the Light Source Angle text box under lightmass should activate. However, in recent version this does not happen anymore, making it impossible to adjust the angle from its default of 1.0.

The feature itself still works as opening a map created in an older version correctly shows the changed value and rebuilding the lighting gives the expected results as seen in the attached screenshot and map file.

I tested the following versions as these were the only ones I had installed at the moment:

  1. works as expected and allows the value to be adjusted

  1. and 4.7 preview 3 both fail to enable the input field making it impossible to adjust the Light Source Angle

Hi Arnage,

I was able to reproduce this and have entered a bug report, UE-7562 to be assessed by the development staff.
