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"

HI Mate

This is fairly easy. When you Press ",", setup a bool that is Running Yes.

Of event tick, Have a branch that runs off that bool,

If true, do something like this. This is for Forward Moment.

they asked for a toggle button. so instead of on release, you can just use the pressed event to set the bool to its opposite value, using the Not operator. alt text

Thank you both! I almost had it correct!

I also feel like this would take up a lot of memory space, since it runs every tick. Is that correct?
