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"

Scale Texture Like a 3x3 Box


I've created a simple material that draws a gradient for a UMG widget item. I can't use a texture for the gradient because the widget can come in a lot of different sizes and aspect ratios. However, I am using a mask texture to round off the corners. Unfortunately, when the widget is anything other than square, the corners are stretched. I can't use the 'draw as 3x3 box' mode for the image in UMG as that screws up the gradient.

Therefore, is it possible to scale the mask inside the material in a way that mimics a UMG image's draw as 3x3 box mode, which is to say, how to I scale the texture whilst preserving the scale of the corners?
