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"

How to change built in subtitles Z order?

Hi every one!

I'm struggling with the UE4 built in subtitles system which is not rendering them when I'm playing a cue (or WAV) inside a widget but only in the 3D world.

Do you know any methods or way using blueprints, widgets or c++ code in order to make them appear even when a widget is visible fullscreen?

Product Version: UE 4.16

Canvas widget controls Z order of its children:

alt text

So does the viewport:

alt text

I'll admit that I've never used built-in subs so not sure whether the above combines well with them, or at all.

I tried this but the subtitles are always displayed behind the UMGs so this is not working (in 4.17).
