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"

Ctrl Dragging and Object into a Different Sub-Level Dirties Origional Level

If I have Level A and Level B in my persistent level.

  • Item A is in Level A.

  • Level B is the Current Level

  • If I CTRL Drag Item A, it makes a new copy in Level B.

  • However now, Level A is dirtied, this even though nothing changed in it.

  • Level B is also dirtied as expected.

Thanks! I read the ticket, and I would also like to clarify, that this dirties the level where the object was being ctrl dragged from If your persistent level has sublevels A,B,C,D... and you ctrl drag an object in B while D is the Active Level, then B will be dirtied, when it shouldn't have been.

Great, thanks for the information. I've added that to the ticket for clarification.
