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"

Possible to bind a key to toggle between viewport views?

The level editor I use in my job lets me toggle through viewport views with a single key combo and it's glorious. Is there any way to do this in UE4? I can't find it anywhere.

Detailed Example: You are in TOP view, you press KEY and it swaps to RIGHT. Press KEY and it swaps to LEFT. Press KEY and it swaps to BOTTOM. etc. Press KEY and it swaps to TOP.

Product Version: UE 4.12

They actually added it as a feature due to me and some others requesting it! https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Support/Builds/ReleaseNotes/2016/4_14

"New: Added shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Space to quickly rotate through different viewports (left, up, front, back ,etc)."

I don't know if you can customize it or not.

I found that method but didn't like it, I want to be able to swap between the views that I've sat up (which is usually a camera view, and a perspective view), that button means I have to cycle through all the views I don't care about, also IIRC it doesn't cycle through the camera view.

I really wish I could have 2 views set up and quickly be able to cycle through them

Hello,

If you go into Edit->Editor Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts->Common Viewport Commands, you should see the viewport views listed in that section. There, you can set a new hotkey to switch over to that viewport.

Have a great day

Thanks, I saw that when looking. I'm looking to have ONE key to swap between them, not one key per viewport.

Thank you for the clarification. I have entered a feature request, which you can track here: https://issues.unrealengine.com/issue/UE-34140

Thanks for your suggestion!

Oh cool. Thanks! In the meantime, I think I'll try to bind them to something a little easier with one hand.

Did you ever find a solution to this? I would also like to toggle/cycle-through with just 1 key, but I can't even find an option to find the windows 1-4 option either
