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"

How can I make a textbox meant for lore text?


I'm making some sort of a map to be used for lore. For now it is a top down look on 3D assets, and what I orriginally wanted was to create the possibility to click on menu buttons on the top of the screen that would give you categories such as: Nations, places, people, history etc. And to get a textbox on the side with information about what you selected.

The problem is that I can't seem to find any good answer on how to do this. I first thought that it would be like in UDK where you could make the HUD/Menu in flash and use it in your level, but after some searching it looks like I need ScaleForm to do this and it would require a license.

Is there any other way I can do this?

If I'm not explaining what I want good enough, think of it as a map you would have in a game and click on places to get lore text about the place you clicked. And a side menu with category buttons to add text or lore to things that can't be clicked at on the 3D map.

I'm very new to UE4 and mostly have some small experience with UDK.
