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"

Material parameters description doesn't show on instance

Hi there, anyone could shed some light on how to get material parameter node description/explanation-text to appear when hovering mouse over material instance parameter?

It was fine when I used UE4.14, the the whole project got updated to 4.16 and all the descriptions turned into this 'Parameter Value' text instead of the Japanese texts I put in the node description.

alt text

Thanks in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.16

Confirming this is still an issue in 4.18.3 (and is not related to Japanese text, specifically). All my param descriptions show up as "Parameter Value" in a material instance

Even when I'm the one who's created the parent material, I miss these descriptions a lot..
