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"

Snapping object to position on any surface under mouse in editor

Hi, Is there any way to snap object to any surface (terrain, other object) which is under mouse in editor? I'm looking to same functionality the CryEngine have, look for example here http://worldofleveldesign.com/categories/cryengine-3-sdk/cryengine-3-sdk-07-place-objects-models-into-map.php You can aliging your object to terrain or to objects, you can also move the object anywhere on the terrain where you left click, and move and align the object to surface normals where you left click. I can't find something similar in UE4


Product Version: UE 4.12

I think there is no such functionality in the engine.

The closest thing would be to use the END key on your keyboard. It snaps the object you have currently selected to the floor right below it.

Pressing the "End" key doesn't seem to do anything.
