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"

Why is there no "Cast to..." in 4.3?

Hey Guys

I'm using 4.3 and there are no "Cast to ..." for any classes except the player controller. I've tried in multiple blueprints, with and without the context sensitive setting. Think this is a bug, unless I'm doing something wrong.

Hey all,

In order for a cast to work, you need a reference to cast to. In most cases, you won't see an option to cast when searching unless you are pulling off a reference node. Let me know if you have any specific instances where it isn't working, preferably with an image, and I can show you how it should work.

Hope that helps!

Seems to be working for me. I've got casts to MyGame, MyCharacter, MyPlayerController, and NewWidgetBlueprint... I haven't tried any others, but those are working fine. Maybe try a fresh fork/sync and recompile the editor?

I am using 4.4.2, and I also only got "cast to player controller". What's your result?
