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"

Is there a way to listen for actions in a widget blueprint while the game is paused?

I have an input action (Menu) which opens up a pause menu. From there you can go into several other menus. I wanted my Menu key to also be used to go back from these other menus, so I set up a listen for it, but I couldn't get it to ever trigger. My input action (Menu) is set to activate while paused. If I disable the pause function of my menu, it all works fine. But while its paused, it never seems to listen in my widget.

I have an idea for a work around, which is to have a variable that keeps track of what menu you're on, and then uses that to direct my input action in the character object, but that just seems so clunky.

Every Actor has a checkbox "Tick while Paused" you can use to keep player controllers and the menus they interact with working, while keeping other things paused.

NOTE: Not all objects are Actors.
