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"

How can i view the size (in Unreal Units) of an object

I might be blind but i can't seem to find this option anywhere. I've just started using unreal for a class, and everything i put into the engine has to be in real world sizes (cm). I cant seem to find where you can see the length-width-height of any of the objects in the engine. Is this possible?

Hi!

If you open the object editor, you can see the base properties of the mesh.

Also you can use measure tools in orthographic viewports. Place mouse cursor in the start, press and hold middle mouse button and move cursor to the end.
