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"

Can I make a Material, or its containing folder, 'Read-Only'.


I would like to know if there is a way to 'lock' Materials from being changed in the editor. I would like to be able to create and edit Material Instances from them, but I don't want anyone to be able to go into the actual Material Blueprint to change anything.

Is there a way to make the material 'Read-only' or lock the folder they are in?

And yes.. I know I should be able to just ask people not to mess around in the Blueprints. But they won't listen.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
