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"

You are permitted to use images of UE4 itself from Epic's documentation for your own for-profit documentation.

hi, I was read this faq: https://www.unrealengine.com/faq

"Can I create official documentation and textbooks? Yes. We'd love to hear about any contributions you'd like to make. Please utilize our resources and share information with the community. You can kick off discussions about this on the forums, chat with us on Twitter, add to the Wiki and attend our weekly Twitch stream."

It say that I can use their resources, but not sure if i can sell it if i include a figure they created in my textbook.

I suggest you to read the terms of service or wait for an official answer from a staff member, I don't recommend trusting the answer of an outsider when it comes to the legal terms. Only trust yourself and the staff to avoid conflicts.
