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"

I'm marking this as resolved, but if this does not resolve the issue, respond and we will continue to troubleshoot why you are not able to create an APK file.

Will packaging it reduce the file size? Right now, it's at about 300 mgs, and it needs to be 50.

Packaging will compress and reduce file size somewhat. To reduce it further, I recommend making a copy of the project (in case you break something) and deleting all non-essential files from the Content Browser. Also, under Project Settings>Packaging: be sure "Include Debug Files" is unchecked. (The Debug file is appox 100mb.)
