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"

4.9.2 Dragging spotlight to Class BP turns into regular light

Steps are as follow,

Create a new Class Blueprint with both windows open, the main UE4 level editor and class blueprint side by side. Drag a lights\spotlight from the main UE4 editor to your class blueprint components window.

Instead of having a spotlight, a regular point light will be created instead.

Easy work around is add the spotlight component from the BP window.

Hello Nossgrr,

The reason that this doesn't work is because you're trying to move a Spot Light actor into the blueprint when you drag it from the main editor. Adding the spot light in the blueprint itself adds a spot light component, which is why it works as intended when you add it that way. Hope that helps.
