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"

Variable Name Bug from Blueprint Node

Engine Version: 4.1.1

Reproduction Steps With Problem Description

If I follow the instructions in the material tutorial video here:


Once you get to the part about creating Dynamic Material Variable, when I type the name Dynamic Material to name the variable and press Enter key, it automatically makes the second character in word dynamic DYnamic instead of Dynamic.

Attachment List: Picture showing the text/string format problem for the variable name field.

Hi KnightTechDev,

I was unable to reproduce your issue here, have you tried reproducing it in another level or a new project?

I was able to reproduce the problem several times yesterday even after computer restart, I read your reply today and created a new level with the starter content, after that I followed the steps again and it worked no problem, I went back into the old level after that, and renamed the variable, and again no problem, I really don't know what did it but I guess it's one of those weird things.

I've ruled out keyboard issues, so since it's working now guess I'll consider this as solved.

Thank you!
