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"

Disable Actor selection in editor mode?

Is there anyway you can disable selection of actors in the scene? I would like to do visualisation of a grid there by placing an actor, but the grid overlay prevents me selecting on actor underneath it.

As far as I know this functionality is still missing in the editor. What you can do for now is to Lock Actor Movement so that noone will move it inside editor (in the World Outliner right click on the object -> Transform -> Lock Actor Movement). You can use it together with hiding objects on the scene (eye icons in the World Outliner).

It's not exactly what you wanted but maybe it will help a bit.
