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"

Data table change apostrophe into question marks

Hello, I'm not sure why when I upload my data table (.csv) all the apostrophe are changed for question marks. Any suggestion?

Thanks

Try the other one, who knows?! I've never had problems with those but I'm not sure which one I used.

Well, the other one works, any idea why it might be? Because the text has to be written by some people with who I don't have much contact and it might be hard to tell everyone to write with a specific apostrophe. Do you have any suggestion for a walk around?

Many thanks

From UE4's point of view, there's most likely very little you can do apart from requesting an additional feature from the Devs - somehow I feel they'll consider it a low priority, though.

You can do mass Find & Replace in any text processor. In Word / Excel it's Ctrl+h. Find all apostrophes and replace them with the one that does not break the entire DataTable...

It's a disappointing oversight from Epic's side.

Hope it helps.

It helped a lot, thanks for pointing out there are two apostrophes and I discovered that Microsoft Word does the "bad" one and everywhere else the same button does the good one, even in excel.

And yes I just did the mass replacement, it's just those kinds of extra things that make you really annoyed, but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Again thanks :)

I do, UE4 is a fantastically comprehensive set of tools but not without some bothersome quirks.

Btw, which apostrophe you're getting may depend on which language is currently selected. While I'm getting 3 identical results here, while I type in the Chrome browser, I'm also getting different results for the 3 languages I've got installed in when typing in Word... Perhaps Office just tries to be extra clever.

Good luck with the project!

Well, I don't know if you are interested or not, but if you follow these steps link it starts to use the straight apostrophe. :)

And there we go, I learnt something today! Thanks.
