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"

Is there a way to revert CDO back to constructor initialized setup?

I have a number of actors in my scene that are spawned from around 50 blueprints. All of my blueprints have only one component that extends from a custom component class which inherits UStaticMeshComponent.

In my component constructor I set the collision preset and enabled status of the static mesh component.

However while I create the blueprints in the editor I've overridden the first blueprint's collision preset and copied the remaining blueprints from the first one (I only changed the static meshes and component names) then I put my actors from these 50 copy/pasted blueprints.

My problem is since I've changed the collision preset and enabled status in the editor I updated the CDO of all these blueprints.

Is there a way to cancel this CDO (if possible for all 50 blueprints) and make these blueprint classes revert back to their original values (reconstructed using the C++ constructor implementation).

Thanks in advance for your answers.

  1. Select all the blueprints you want to change in the content browser

  2. Right-click on one of them, select "Edit Shared Defaults"

  3. Find the rollout for your component and click the little yellow reset arrow on the properties you want to reset
