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"

Moving Projects and Source Folder?

I got my game project that I'm working on in my default UE4 project folder under my documents. I also have a folder on my desktop which is my folder for all my textures, exported meshes from Maya, and speedtree stuff. Now I don't want to move my game project folder. I want to move my folder from my desktop to a different location. I'm afraid that if I move it, it will cause some problems when I right-click an asset in UE4 and choose "reimport" and it will keep asking me to find the asset because I moved the source folder to a different location. How can I relink the source folder (a.k.a. "containing folder") to my UE4 project?

I do make changes to my assets often and "reimport" almost every week when I'm working.

Product Version: UE 4.8

I've been trying to figure out how to relink and update the source folder without having to one-by-one reimport your assets in ue4 to the updated source folder location. This should be a new feature in the next Unreal Engine 4 update under project settings.
