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"

Expanding a macro then deleting nodes changes the original macro

I have a simple macro containing "Add Instanced Static Mesh Component".

I use this macro, then duplicate it, expand the duplicate, then delete the resulting node.

This causes the in-situ macro to break. If I hit Save, then inspect the macro, it has changed to "Add Component". The macro needs to be recreated.

This is the same when using a Blueprint Macro Library.

Example project (Open BT_Test, clone the macro on the Construction Script, Expand Node, delete the expansion, hit compile)
