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"

Worked fine but, what about changing the font size or selecting a word as bold? Is that possible in this case with text variable inside data table row editor??

Haha that's necromancy on a post from 2016 ^^

To answer you : you won't be able to change font or anything directly in the text input. However, you can use markers to perform that kind of change automatically when rendered. That is rich text, that you can use in UMG. Here is the documentation page for more information.

I still didn't find it, was using google docx to edit file manually. Could you please paste a screen or something, can't find where is that arrow

That data table in the image has a struct where you defined it. That structure has a bunch of string variables in it and next to the variable name is an arrow. let me know if you cant find it.alt text Right on the left of these string variables

oh, so your suggestion is to use arrays instead of simple variables? I was hoping there is a way I can use simple string (No array value) and output text in a few lines. Like when I edit it in csv and type shit+enter, the simple string moves to a new line and a simple string outputs text in 2 lines. There must be a way to do same inside engine... but I never figured it out.

Write the text with linebreak in notepad or excel, copy it, right click on the name of the row in the DataTable (not the textbox) and click "paste"
