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 change hotkeys for viewport ?

Since I work a lot in Blender and Radiant (level editor), I am used to having 1 viewport where I can cycle views. Luckily for me both Blender and Radiant have Ctrl + Tab hotkey to cycle between 3D view and ortho views. Blender also has numpad keys to switch between views/3D.

I am looking into UE4 docs here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/UI/LevelEditor/Viewports/Basics/index.html#viewporttypes and it seems bizarre to have all different keys to switch between views. I'd understand if you had Alt + T for Top for example, but keys don't even represent names of the views :/

Is there any way to either customize keys and have them on the numpad, or somehow have Ctrl + Tab to cycle between them ?

Bumping this one up. It really shouldn't be that hard to such functionality to 4.11 :/

I found this old question because I, myself was looking for this.

The answer is to open - Edit (the dropdown) - Editor Preferences and choose Keyboard Shortcuts on the left. Now the easiest way to find the command is to use the filter up at the top but if you want to dig, these commands are in "Common Viewport Commands". Personally, I just type in "right" "top" etc.

Once you find the command, just click in the Binding field at the right and enter a new shortcut (i.e. for a Blender feel, I used 1 for front, 3 for right, 7 for top).

Now to look "through" or "pilot" a camera (or even a light), you would normally use CNTRL + Shift + P but you could set that to 0 (like Blender camera). Just filter for "pilot" and you will find that binding in Level Viewports.

Hope this helps!
