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"

Designing Pop-Text with UI Text


I followed this tutorial for creating interactive pop-up text for my project. However, after I packaged the game into an executable, the text does not appear in the executable. I then discovered in the video's comment section that the print text is only used for debugging in the project only. Is there a way to use the same blueprints to use UI text with fonts instead to work in the executable?

Yes, the print string function is only for the game development process. If you want it to be in your packaged game, you will have to make a Widget Blueprint for the text, then when you click on the item, in blueprints say Create Widget and select the widget blueprint you made, then add to viewport. That should work for you. alt text
