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"

Missing material parameter description from function

Hi,

Since few days we've noticed that descriptions in material parameters are missing. I've collapsed all shaders of the project into few functions, material parameters descriptions were still displayed, but all of a sudden all these descriptions has disappeared.

I can't find a way to retrieve description, which is bad for our artists. Even the lightest shader using only one function can't retrieve material parameter descriptions.

Screen 1; Here's the Description of the parameter, located in a material function used in several shaders.

Screen 2; And here's the result when hoovering the parameter, showing "Parameter Value" instead of the description. And again : it used to work (and it was very cool :> )

Any clue about this ? The odd stuff is that at first descriptions were all properly kept, it really disappeared all of a sudden. Thanks.

Any update on this? This is related to another issue I've been following from last October: https://answers.unrealengine.com/answers/504802/post.html
