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"

Typing +/- In Blueprint Editor Always Causes Zoom

Just something I thought I would point out, since it has already occurred a copious amount of times while using the editor:

Regardless of where your mouse is focused (such as editing a node in its place), if you press + or -, it will zoom in or out. Great for navigating with the keyboard, I'm sure, but not so useful when typing in some parameters for a node (text box has focus).

Hi Zakku Arachi,

I was not able to reproduce the bug you are reporting following these steps:

  1. Open a UE4.14 project with Starter Content

  2. Open Blueprint_CeilingLight

  3. In the Construction Script, add Node: Collision: BoxOverlapActors

  4. Type numerous +'s and -'s into X Y and Z value fields RESULT: +'s and -'s fill value fields EXPECTED BUG: Camera to zoom in and/or out when + or - is typed in text field.

If this is does not represent how you are producing the bug you are reporting, please provide repro steps like these in order for us to recreate the issue on our end.

Also, please include your systems specs so that we are testing on a similar machine.

Ah, I forgot to mention I'm running Ubuntu 16.04. To better recreate the bug, add a [Print String] node and set the cursor focus on the string. Typing + or - in the box will trigger the zoom hot-keys, regardless of the text box having the focus.
