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 MadAnxory,

One way to do this would be to add them as a sub-level and then copy > paste the assets over. Just be aware that anything in the Level Blueprints of Level2 will need to be added to the Level BP's of Level1.

  • While in Level1, click the Windows tab > Levels

  • In the Levels tab click the Levels drop-down > Add Existing

  • Add the level you want (Level2)

  • Click the eye beside Level1 to hide it

  • Select Ctrl+Mouse Drag to select everything in Level2

  • Hit Ctrl+C to copy

  • Hide Level2 and unhide Level1

  • Double click Level1 to make sure it is the Persistent Level

  • Click in the viewport, then Ctrl+V to paste in all the items (Before going to the next step, make sure you copied everything you wanted)

  • Back in the Levels panel Right Click Level2 > Remove Selected (This doesn't delete the level, just removes it as a sub-level)

Thanks, TJ

Hi TJ, I tried following your steps in UE4.9.2 and getting the following dialog box:

Pasting to Hidden Level Dialog Box

Maybe I haven't followed your steps correctly or something has changed?

Contents of dialog box for future searches:

Title: Pasting to Hidden Level

Contents: You are trying to paste to a hidden level. Suppressing this will default to Do Not Paste.

Two buttons: 1) Unhide level and paste 2) Do not paste

Hi Richard,

Yeah, that solution was several version ago.

You can basically do the same thing now like this:

  • Go to the Window tab at the top and open the Levels window

  • Right-click the level you want to be rid of and choose 'Make Current'

  • Right-click the level again and choose 'Select Actors'

  • With the actors still selected, right-click the level you want to move the items to and choose 'Move Selected Actors to Level'

  • Feel free to toggle the Eye icon to make sure everything was moved properly

  • Then select the level you want to delete and right-click it

  • Choose 'Remove Selected'

I hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else.
