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"

Change editor units from centimeters to meters

Hey everyone,

I've been having this problem and the solution is nowhere to be found. The transform option in the editor shows the units in centimeters. I'd like to change this to meters, just like Unity does. I'm making a big level, so having to work with values exceeding 10.000 is annoying. Where can I find the option to turn the units to meters?

I have tried to change the "World Settings" -> "World to Meters" setting, but it doesn't change the units in the transform tab. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Since version 4.8 you can setup the units individually for each project's.

How do you get it using c++?

This is a bit of an old question, but in case anyone with the same problem searches it out, the answer should be the same regardless of whether you're using Blueprints or C++. Either case you will still be using the Unreal Editor to manage your project and will have access to change the project settings as shown in the answer above.
