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"

Potential bug with Text Render component and negative Xscale

I had a Text Render that was showing backwards from how I wanted it, but I couldn't get the rotations working how I wanted, so I got overly clever and decided to try something else. I changed the Xscale to -1 and while this indeed worked to flip my text, it no longer did the horizontal centering properly.

Steps to repro:

Create a new blueprint Add a text render and a box, set the text render's horizontal alignment to centered. Position the text centered and above the box Edit the text render's Xscale to -1 Confirm the text does flip horizontally, but is no longer horizontally centered above the box

None of the options left/center/right really seem to work with the negative Xscale, but since it allows you to use negative numbers here, I'm guessing this is just an obscure bug. The Yscale and vertical alignment exhibit the same broken behavior from what I can tell.
