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"

Possible to automaticaly reorient the translation gizmo so that it faces the camera?

The translation gizmo's arrows are always pointed in the same direction. This leads to situations like these where in particular orientations I can't grab the gismo by the red/green plane because two other planes are in the way: alt text

Is there an option for the gizmo to reorient itself so that the arrows always face toward the camera, leaving all tree planes of movement available for grabbing, like so? alt text This is the default behavior in Unity, and also the default behavior of the Rotation gizmo. Thanks.

ctrl + ` (below esc key) will toggle world and local axis orientation. I don't know if there's an option to reorient gizmo along camera.

Thanks for the advice! That doesn't really help with my issue though.

And on a side note, I really doubt that there are many people who use UE and don't know where the ` key is :)
