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"

Possible to assign material to Runtime Text?

Hi I'm trying to place plain texts in scene but I've the negative way in both cases (runtime and offline), at the beginning I tried to put in a Widget (UMG) a Font Material, but looked here around I've realized is not possible (at least nowadays), then I've tried like text render but the inconvenience can't play with the alpha property (in Text Render Color) so then I way back to try in a Widget like a Runtime Font but now I've the incovenience the text renders with too much bright reflection (show in a picture):

alt text

Somebody can tell me how to take it out and confirm me if is not possible to assign a material to Runtime Text to avoid the specular?
