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 to ignore /Splash/ folder for auto import

I wish to ignore /Splash/ folder from auto import - it's not supposed to be monitored. I wish these settings to be in the Project and not the Editor too (that's where I saw the current options for auto load)

This doesn't seem possible at this time, therefor every user gets this annoying message on startup asking to import Splash.bmp

Hello Tom Looman,

After doing a bit of digging I was able to find out that this feature is already underway internally and that it should be available in a later release of the engine. Until then you do have a couple of options that may be viable depending on your needs.

  1. Turn off the auto-reimport completely

  2. Set up individual monitors for each sub directory that you want to be monitoring, excluding /Splash/, in the advanced options instead of the root folder.

As for applying your settings on a project wide scale, the suggestion was to distribute project your DefaultEditorUserSettings.ini through your source control (usually residing inside Game/Config/DefaultEditorUserSettings.ini). I hope this information helps.

Make it a great day

Was this feature ever released? I want to stop everything under /Slate/ from being automatically imported.
