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"

DPI Scaling IPhone 6 Plus Wrong?

I created a new project, added some widgets, and from what I can tell, using the DPI Curve Shortest Side, iPhone 6 plus is evalued at 480. If I change the value at 480, after packaging (mobile preview works fine) the size of the UI elements scale. But shouldn't the shortest side on iPhone 6 plus be 1080? Is this an over site or am I missing something?

4.6.1, new project , C++, with high end mobile settings, set to build for Metal, iOS 8 min.

Howdy Awdogs,

Thank you for reporting this issue. Would you be able to better clarify how you are changing the resolution? I went into the device profile and changed it that way. Let me know if you changed it some other way because i was unable to see any errors after packaging and deploying.

I am using a windows machine so let me know if you are using OS X or Windows. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hey Awdogs,

I did using one method. I wanted to check with you and see the method you have used in order to possible see that same results so that a Report may be written if this does occur.

Please be sure to let me know when you get the chance.

Howdy Awdogs,

Just wanted to reach out to you and see if you are still experiencing this issue since the release of 4.7. If so, would you be able to provide repro steps of how i may be able to recreate this issue internally?

I just tried it, and its the same, issue, here let me show you some screen shots of the issue, as that might better illustrate my point, here with 5s preview with DPI Scaling of 1, is how the size and placement of things SHOULD look (theres no iphone 6plus preview so this is the closest thing available, but it would only be bigger), then there is the photo from my 6 plus. Look at the placement and size of things now. once again, its dpi one since I've set it to be DPI of 1 no matter what in the user interface settings as shown 3rd notice the straight line and a value of 1. I don't have any special Device profiles for 6plus, everything is default except for the fact I've set it to run under 'METAL' with min of iOS 8. (and obviously its portrait view). I hope this helps.: alt text alt text

Hello Awdogsgo2heaven,

I was reading over you post and I wanted to ask you a few questions that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of step to reproduce this on our end?

  3. Could you provide details about the placement of the anchors for your widgets?
