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"

Datasmith Import Icon Missing

Hi

I have just installed a fresh copy of UE4 and I have checked that the Datasmith plug-in is enabled, however I do not see the import icon on the toolbar next to settings.

Could anyone help me bring this up, please?

Thanks

Product Version: UE 4.21

First, I want to confirm that you are using Windows.

In the Editor, go to Edit > Plugins > Unreal Studio. If Datasmith is installed to the engine you should see a number of different plugins listed here including "Datasmith Importer". Make sure all the plugins are enabled.

If you still need further help, please log an Unreal Studio support ticket on our dedicated support site: https://docs.unrealengine.com/Studio

Thank you.

Hi Stephen

Yes, I am using Windows.

The only two plug-ins I can see there are Datasmith Content and Variant Manager Content, and these are both enables.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Go to the Launcher's "Library" page, and under the 4.21 engine slot, click on "Installed Plugins". It sounds to me like Datasmith isn't installed. You can confirm here. If it does show...uninstall the plugin. And either way, scroll down the Library page until you see the Datasmith plugin, and install it to 4.21.

And of course, in order to see the Datasmith Plugin, you must be signed up for the Unreal Studio Beta.
