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 to reorder variable Categories in Class Defaults?

Changing order of variable categories in "My Blueprint" tab doesn't change the order of categories in Class Defaults tab. Is there a way to change it?

I still didn't figure it out. In "My Blueprint" panel, my categories are sorted like X,Y,Z, but in "Class Defaults" they are in Y,Z,X order.

I've tried renaming my categories with prefixes like A_, B_ and 1_ 2_, etc. to maybe sort it alphabetically, but nothing helped... Are categories ordered randomly? I can't find anything that will somehow control their order in Details/Class Defaults tabs.

I guess it's not possible, and categories are sorted randomly then ;) That's strange though, because it gives us an option to reorder categories, but it doesn't affect their order anywhere else besides blueprint variables window.

bump to this! Stucked at the same - can't reorder categories

I wonder if is there any rule that 'sorts' all the categories... For now, it seems completely random.

Hmm... Maybe it should be a feature request? :) But it's strange that it doesn't work...

More bumps to this! Has there been any progress on a solution? Or has it at least been added as a feature request?

Bump, any plans to fix this? Currently it doesn't seem possible to intentionally re-order the position of the variable categories in the details panel for a custom class. Very troublesome for complex classes.

You can use sub-categories as a stop gap to help keep your custom vars easy to find in the details menu (probably only through c++): https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Programming/UnrealArchitecture/Reference/Properties/Specifiers/Category/index.html It still doesn't alphabetise things but at least they're a bit easier to keep track of.
