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"

Variables not consistent it child blueprints

I have been using parent and child blueprints, and I have noticed a bug(?) where the child blueprints don't have the same variables. For example:

Is this a bug? can it be fixed, thanks in advance.

Hi aFanOfHammers,

The variables from a Parent Blueprint are available in the Child BP, but they don't show up in the My Blueprint tab by default. To show them, click the eye icon at the top of the tab and enable, "Show Inherited Variables":

alt text

This will include all the variables from the Parent BP. Alternatively, if you don't need them showing up in that tab, a simple search for the variable in the Event Graph will return a Get and Set option as well.

Hope that helps!
