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"

[4.7.5] Derived Asset Thumbnails

If you make a base BP with a mesh, then make a derived BP and change the mesh to something other then what the base was using, the thumbnails still only show the base mesh.

Using 'real-time thumbnails' or 'thumbnail edit mode' don't fix it.

Also the 'capture thumbnail' option has disappeared from the context menu, i assume it was simply made redundant with the live thumbnails feature.

On a related note, I've noticed that if a child blueprint uses a billboard and a sprite, that sprite isn't use as the thumbnail. Is this a bug or is there something special to do?
