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"

TAB Input gets "Released" when in UI/Game Mode and pressing Button

Hello there. I have encounterd a problem with Input Events and Widgets. So I want to have a widget open when I have Tab pressed and close as soon as I release it. Nothing uncommon so far, but I also want to be able to use the Mouse on the Widget an press a few buttons so I switch the Input Mode.

Input Mode Game and UI

So this is the basic setup where I switch to Game and UI Input Mode and as soon as I release it the Input mode should switch back to Game Only and close the widget. But the problem is as soon as I press a Button on a Widget the Tab Release gets triggerd although I still have TAB pressed. As soon as I release Tab the Tab Release gets triggerd again. So in Short:

Pressing Tab

Switching to Input Mode Game and UI

Creating and Displaying UI

Pressing Button on UI with left mouse Button -> Tab Release gets triggerd

Releasing Tab -> Tab Release gets triggerd again

@RudyQ on further investigation its a general bug where it happens with any pressed key returning to their unpressed state.
