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"

UMG: Bind Outline colour and opacity

I'm using UE 4.14.3 and I can't seem to bind the outline colour and opacity, is this a bug? we can bind text colour and opacity and we can also bind shadow but not outline? any word on this would be appreciated, I'm looking for a workaround in the meantime, I came across a node "make outline settings" which seems to suggest there is a way to set outline settings of a text object in UMG.

Product Version: UE 4.14

Bump. 4.19 still doesn't let you animate Font Outlines in UMG...

Heya. You can't bind it, but you can take a Text widget, get its Font property. Split this struct and you will get its Font Outline Settings. Split that struct and you get your outline properties. So if you want to assign outline settings, it is a property of the Text's Font's Outline struct.
