Display image on screen when an item is collected
When a player picks up a page, the page is then displayed on screen for them to read. I was able to make it so the player picks up a page and it then disappears but I cant figure out how to display it on screen.
You can probably tell my knowledge of blueprint is very basic, so if anyone could point me in the right direction of what I should be doing it would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Well I assume you either have a picture of the text or just plain text.
Create a widget either accepting a text or an image as input (by creating a variable which you have to make editable and also check the box "Expose on Spawn". This will provide an additional pin when creating this widget.)
You can then on pickup of your actor display this widget with the new information you received from that actor (it's text or image). I do hope you can keep an reference to that page already. Otherwise just tell me so and I'll cover that as well ;)
Anyway that's already about it. Did you see the videos about the inventory system from epic? That pretty much covers everything you need.
