How to auto expand C++ generated components
This is an issue that's bothered me for a long time, but I've finally decided to look into what I can do about it. Every time I make a component in a C++ class, and derive a blueprint from that class the components show up in this manner:
Whereas components added directly to the blueprint look like this:
It's only a relatively small issue, but it just gets quite frustrating, I don't want to have to click a drop down on a component every time I want to edit it. I've googled around a bit, thinking that UCLASS(AutoExpandCategories) or UPROPERTY(SimpleDisplay) thinking they might work, but no luck. Any answers?

To make the component show up the way that you would like it to, it would be best to use this list of specifiers for the UPROPERTY declaration.
This seems to be a behavior of EditAnywhere, but using VisibleAnywhere along with AllowPrivateAccess (which will allow you to still edit) should yield the results you want.
