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"

Zoom in closer in blueprint

Hi all

I am having trouble placing my static meshes as I cannot zoom in far enough, the object is about 10cm but I cant zoom in far enough to fine tune the movements.

Is there any way to zoom in closer to an object in blueprints.

Thank

Product Version: UE 4.19

For finetuning you have to disable snapping (green)

And set camera speed to 1. (red)

Also you can further slow down the camera with the mouse scroll wheel.

Thanks, but I was meaning the limit of the zoom. once you get close enough in you can no longer get closer.

what do you mean? are you trying to place a very large object and theres camera clipping or the origin is to far away so you cant see the edge to place correctly. you could always get your object in the ballpark of where it needs to be then type in the location in the details panel. the viewport allows you to at close as you can until the object begins clipping the camera.

My object is about 25cm long, i want to zoom in closer than the image shows so i can position things better but the zoom stops here in the 10cm range.

Hello KelDG,

If you would like to use the zoom function in the editor, the shortcut is Hold the Right Mouse button > press/hold the 'C' key. The Camera will remain zoomed in as long as the right mouse button is held down. I hope that this information helps.

Make it a great day

That is a cool feature I did not know about, but is not what I meant, i can explain better with a picture.

Found this thread when searching for the same issue, so here's my solution for future discoverers:

Had the same problem, when trying to exactly position child components in ortographic view.

Found a workaround which worked for me:

  • select root component in components viewer

  • in details view / transform, scale up, e.g. to 10. This should also scale up all child elements

  • do the positioning work

  • again select root component, and reset scale to 1
