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"

Scultpting/Painting Brush Size Hotkey

I've looked but cannot find a way to set a hotkey (preferably with the mouse wheel) to change the size and falloff of the sculpting/painting brush. Is there one?

If I'm not overlooking something, it should be something to consider adding as it's hard to have a good workflow when you have to keep stopping to go over and manually adjust the brush size...

Is this already solved? Is there a hotkey for brushsize like ALT+MouseWheel or ALT+RMB+Horizontal Mouse Movement?

Bump. Those Scroll-wheel Hotkeys would be really nice to have.

->shaiya unfortunately this doesn't seem to work with a german keyboard, as those brackets are on "alt gr + 8" and "alt gr + 9". You get problems with pretty much all UE4 hotkeys on german keyboards and even rebinding keys doesn't usually get them to work..

Sorry to hear. Hopefully they will add an option in the settings menu, so people could choose their own shortcut keys.

The [ or ] does not seem to work, even when changing the keyboard to english or mapping it to a Wacom tablet.

It could be really really great if you can add this as a customizable shortcut. It would increase many people's workflow immensely. The foliage brush can be custom mapped as a shortcut, so it makes sense to do it with the terrain brush as well.

Ctrl + mouse wheel scroll also controls the brush size
