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"

copy paste text in game

heres a genius idea i just thought up but am not genius enough to make

would it be possible to blueprint a copy/paste function to work in game? say if i had a block of text written in a widget can the cursor be used to highlight it and copy it then paste it into another widget? im talking realtime, not in editor, obviously.

im thinking of creating a portable storage system as a game mechanic but have literally no idea if its actually possible.

Why not try it and see? It does work indeed in UMG, you can copy and paste text fields. Works with keyboard shortcuts and the right click context menu.

It doesn't work in HTML5, if that's any concern.
