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"

UMG in 4.18: Text outline error

Hi guys,

I have an issue when using UMG. I have live text in the widget, and when I assign an outline, it breaks a little. I have 2 text layers so that I can double up the strokes, seeing as I can only have 1 outline on text at a time.

If you look at the hierarchy image: "FreeSpinsTextFront" has an outline size of 8. "FreeSpinsTextBack" has an outline setting of 30, as well as a dropshadow.

The second image shows the issue it is creating. I'm not sure how to get around this :(

Let's check the vector data of the font file. When correcting the vector data with Adobe Illustrator etc. and recreating the font file, it may be displayed correctly.
