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"

how to refresh/reload the content browser

me and my friends want to work on a project simultaneously, so we have come to a conclusion that we use file sharing and we all connect to our friends computers files and we work on that work space, but if one of us does a change and we want to see the change we need to restart the project file in order to load it, is there an easier way to refresh the content browser and its files?

Product Version: UE 4.16

We are using version control for sharing the files across a team and I've kind of come to the conclusion that its best to shut down the editor before brining in files from the repository.

rant: While there is much I love about UE4 I must say that not dealing well with external version control and the content browser not being refreshable without restarting are a HUGE pain in the ass. I'm coming from another one of the popular game engines and while its not as good as UE4 in many respects, this is one area that UE4 seems to kind of drop the ball. When you are in a big team oh who cares if you loose 15 minutes restarting your editor 4 times a day. For a small team that makes a huge difference.
