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"

When you alter a file in use by UE4 in a way that makes it invalid for the engine's purposes and Accept the changes, it removes the (no longer valid) file from the Assets list but does not delete it from the folder.

Unfortunately, when you replace it with a Valid copy it does not restore it to the asset window/list.

Sometimes you can save it under a new name then rename it. Otherwise you have to manually delete it and reload the project to get it to recognize that file again.
