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"

[4.7 Feedback] Collections should be enabled by default so you can make new ones

Dear Epic,

I love collections and I show my UE4 clients how to use them all the time and they all love them!

In 4.7, there doesn't seem to be a way to make a new collection using the "Choose Path" folder in the top of the content browser, were you can still find collections by default.

I had to re-enable the old collections view in order to be able to make a new collection!

This is not very intuitive for new users!

You can see my difficulty in figuring this all out here:

Create a ini File in your Project in /Config called "DefaultEditorPerProjectUserSettings.ini"

Include following Parameters

[/Script/UnrealEd.ContentBrowserSettings]

DisplayCollections=True

Either delete your Saved Folder if your sure (You lose for instance Autosaves) or go the save route by deleting in Saved/Config the "EditorPerProjectUserSettings.ini" (You lose your custom Editor Settings, such as Content Browser Thumbnail Size, so save it), to test it if it works.

Now upload the DefaultEditorPerProjectUserSetttings.ini to your preferred Source Control. For existing Users it won't change anything, assuming that they were instructed to activated it in the Editor directly, but for new users they will see the Collection Tab.
