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"

[Feature Request] Drag texture over material Tab to drop it

I don't know if this has been asked already ( If so I'm sorry for bothering you with a rebashed request), but I though the following request would help reduce the amount of opened windows on one screen.

alt text

For thos peoples who works on 1 screen only ( nowadays everybody has 2 screen or more I know) It would permit them to drag and drop their static meshe from the content browser directly into the scene without having the 2 windows opened on top of each other.

still for me with 2 screen where i have the main window on my main screen and the content browser on my second screen, I still need to have the material tab side by side with the content browser if I want to drag textures into it.

Actually I came across this issue myself even on a dual monitor setup, I wanted to drag through tabs as I tend to keep my main content browser on the same window as the main viewport on one screen and all the blueprint/editors on the other screen.

Hi Jimmy,

Thank you for your request. I have created a feedback report and entered it into our database. This would make a lot of single-monitor developer's workflows a lot easier. If there is anything else that you would like to see featured in the editor, please let us know.

Thank you,
