Blueprint Favorites

By Mike Beach

Until recently, the Blueprint palette could be a little overwhelming. Since blueprints are extremely powerful, their node library is extensive and sometimes hard to sort through.

Having to search through the node library constantly can add up, and we sought to give users a boost in iteration times. Inspired by internet browser bookmarks, we thought it was a good idea to give users the ability to customize what they have access to. Thus, the Favorites panel was born!

With Blueprint Favorites, users can pin their most-used nodes for easy access. If you’re tired of typing “Event Ti…” every time you need an “Event Tick” node, then the Favorites panel is the solution for you!

The video below shows off the feature, and details exactly how to add/remove a favorite.

We’d love to hear what you think about this feature. Drop by the forums and tell us if you find it helpful!
