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"

Can I open a new window as a tab?

Is it possible to open window assets (for example material, animation or blueprint editor) as new tab not new window? I would like to have all opened windows as tabs in one big window.

Regards, Patrick

The full navigation path to the setting is:

 Editor Preferences > General > Appearance > User Interface > Asset Editor Open Location

(Set it to Main Window)

If you are using 4.14 or above you can find it quicker by clicking on "All Settings" and searching for "Asset Editor".
