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 add outline to subtitles

Hey everyone,

I need to add subtitles to a game and with the text being white, it isn't always readable on light backgrounds.

So I would like to outline my text with a small line of black in addition to the shadow that Unreal already provides. Would anyone have any tips, idea for this problem? I'm using UE 4.10

Thank you, guys!

Product Version: UE 4.10

Proper font outlines in UMG are not yet supported, If you are comfortable modifying the engine source you can try this fix from sds-michael

otherwise it might be sufficient to draw multiple black versions of the text in the background with slight offsets (N, E, S, W)
