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"

"Select All With Same Material" does not work for me

Hi, often I need the function "Select All With Same Material" to apply a specific scale and alignment to my surfaces, but when I use it, it selects all brushes in my map insteat of these of the selected material. Sometimes it works and sometimes not but I wasn't able to reproduce this yet and hope for a tip what I'm doing wrong :) Im using the latest Unreal Tournament Editor btw. Two screens to show the problem: alt text

I think now, this is a bug somwhere in the relevant function used for this but my C++ skills are not good enough to really analyse this one. The function being used is "void UUnrealEdEngine::edactSelectMatchingMaterial()" in UnrealTournament/Engine/Source/Editor/UnrealEd/Private/EditorActor.cpp

Heres another screen which shows two situations, one works as expected and the other one doesn't. 1. "Here, it works" shows the surface where the function "Select All With Same Material" works as expected. 2. "Here, it doesn't work" shows the surface where this function doesn't work and selects any brush in my map.

Both brushes have the same material and are additive... alt text

Hey EisWiesel,

I just tested this issue in a new blank project using 4.9.2 and 4.10.2, which are our more recent engine releases.

Matching Material Selection

alt text

I have found there are a few ways to select all with matching materials. You can select a BSP and press the Shift+T command, you can select the BSP and choose the Select > Select Matching Material under the Geometry section.

You can also use the right click menu, as you are showing in your example post.

Both of these worked correctly for me in either engine version. Try testing this out in one of our newer releases to see if it is working correctly for you there.

Thanks,

Andrew Hurley

Hey AndrewHurley, I just tried the option of your first screen using Select -> Select Matching Material under the geometry Section of a Brush and it works now for the first time :) Seems like I was too stupid to find it... thx a lot for your effort. However the second method, using the contextmenu like in my first post still doesnt work. Using the most recent precompiled UT Editor Version: 4.8.0-2771652+++depot+UE4-UT-Releases.

That will speed up my work a lot, thx again :)
