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"

No and Yes

You can't use one in unreal editor because it's editor code and it's quite deeply coded in to it to make it work in runtime out of the bat

But you can make gizmo on your own, there many ways you can do so, starting by simple meshes, draw it in hud canvas, UMG/State based on 3D data, or use same method which editor is using, which is PDI with SceneProxy. It quite low level, here example of PDI use in component:


Search PDI and FPrimitiveSceneProxy for more countless examples of drawing in PDI

SceneManagement.h also provides simple shape drawing functions for PDI

If you look at source you will realize they live in ViewportInteraction module which is Editor only. So you can use them in editor and tools but not in shipping builds as linking against editor code in shipping violates EULA.
