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"

Editor grid lines are drawn on top of transparent materials

Hi, editor grid issue with transparent materials, which is quite distracting when arranging sprites:

alt text

Unreal Version 4.16.1

  1. Create a new empty level.

  2. Change the view type to Front.

  3. Add 2 Paper2D sprites of any kind (or 2 cubes).

  4. Change the first sprite's material to "MaskedUnlitSpriteMaterial" (should be the default).

  5. Change the second sprites material to "TranslucentUnlitSpriteMaterial".

  6. Observe the translucent sprite is drawn behind the grid.

This also happens with any translucent material in perspective view.

Product Version: UE 4.16

Hey Structure,

I am not completely sure this is actually a bug as it occurs in all the engine versions I have tested, and you can simply disable the grid if it is a visual annoyance. I am checking to confirm if this behavior is intended, and will get back to you once I have a definitive answer.

Thank you,

Andrew H.
