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"

If you mean the project thumbnail in the Launcher it is located in your project folder > Saved > AutoScreenshot.

I mean the thumbnail for blueprints that you can see in the content browser.

Check out the Engine folder in Content Browser. Go to Content Browser bottom right corner > View Options > Show Engine Content in order to see that folder if it isnt visible already.

I didn't find the information, I decide to create my own blueprint to visualize each object that I needed a thumbnail and took picture of them. You could do the same and push the thing if you choose to use system such as ( https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/photomode ) to save the picture externally more quickly

There is a free tutorial somewhere on the forum explaining how to take picture of items like in the thumbnails. But i am afraid i cant remember the link to it so you will have to do some googling but that what i ended up with to solve this "issue". :)

If you right click on the thumbnail, a little context menu appears. From there you can scroll down to the heading Asset Actions and in there you can capture a thumbnail from the active viewport editor. Only have tested for maps though.
