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"

Blueprint Editor Autocomplete fails when typing exact name

Repro: I am adding a variable of type Actor in the editor, and type in the text "Actor" into the variable type dropdown, and hit Enter. I would expect the type with that exact name, Actor, to be selected, but instead another type, some struct by the name Active Actor, is filled in by the auto complete system.

Expectation: I expect to be able to type the exact name of a variable type and have that be the actual type selected by the auto complete system. Note that the current behavior also happens in blueprint graphs, where if I type the text "Get SkelMesh" for a component on the current blueprint with a component of said name, the autocomplete does not highlight this exact text match.

Plea: The current behavior is frustrating, and causes me to have to perform many extra keystrokes and clicks, which over time adds up and kills the ergonomics of your interface.

Thanks
