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"

Editor Widget, how to access mesh / actor thumbnails?

Hey folks. I'm making an editor widget, and I was hoping to be able to create a preview of meshes or actors much like we see in the content browser. However there doesn't seem to be a way to use these thumbnails that the engine uses. Seems like a missed opportunity seeing as the whole point of the editor widget is to save time.

It's not the end of the world, a simple delete and try the next one :)

Thanks in advance

Inside the widget BP, you can add an Image

That image can be assigned a texture

The texture can be anything you want - even if it's just a screenshot of the other meshes, etc that you want to show

I would take screenshots of all the things you want to preview, and then assign them to an image ( or images ) inside the widget

Hope this helps !
