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"

Hi StevePeters,

Are you able to reproduce this issue in a new material? When I create a new material with a Texture Object and add a Reroute node into the connection spline after it, the link doesn't break.

I created a new material and a new material function. In the function I input the texture object into a texture sample node. In the main material, everything works until I add a reroute node between the texture object and the material function.

Sadly this is backlogged. I encountered it today in 4.19.2 and submitted a bug report with some videos and a link to the jira mentioned by Jon X
