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"

Expose Material to Set Outside of Blueprint?

I have multiple actors in my level that I'd like to set different materials to inside of the editor instead of inside the blueprint.

Is there a way I can expose the material slot so I can change it in the details tab?

Thank you.

the materials show up in the details tab by default. you may have to select the particular component that you want to change however. with your actor selected, if you look at the top of the details panel you will see a section which list the actors components. if you select a component on the list then you can change the components material in the details panel.
