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"

I noticed that you have more than one issue, as well as a request. I the future you will need to make separate threads for each issue/request for tracking purposes. I was able to reproduce the issues above and I have written up request to expose "Set Justification". I have provided links to the public tracker.

Hi Rudy, was it fixed now? In which UE version? Changing the font parameter in blueprint fro Multi-line textbox was an issue from years ago, and I wonder why developers haven't fixed this very simple bug.
