Blueprint Bookmarks

Choose your OS:

With Blueprint Bookmarks you can create named Bookmarks in any function graph in the Blueprint Editor. This bookmark will capture the position and zoom level of the Viewport, and the active tab you were viewing when you created the bookmark. Bookmarks are stored locally on your machine, so they won’t affect the Blueprint itself, and syncing your content will not overwrite your Bookmarks with another user’s Bookmarks.

Creating Bookmarks

To create a Blueprint Bookmark: 

  1. With the Graph and Zoom position you wish to Bookmark, click the Star icon in the upper-left of the graph.

  2. In the New Bookmark window, enter your desired name and click the Add button.

Viewing and Using Bookmarks

To view or use a previously created Bookmark, open the Bookmarks window. 

  1. From the Window menu option, select Bookmarks

    This will open the Bookmarks menu that displays all the Bookmarks for the current asset as well as any Comment Blocks

    Click the Eye icon in the upper-right corner of the Bookmarks window for options to disable showing Comment Nodes or to Show Bookmarks for Current Graph Only.BlueprintBookmarks_Using_03.png

    Enabling Show Bookmarks for Current Graph Only will show Bookmarks for your active Graph (disabling will show all Bookmarks for the asset while on any Graph). 

    Right-clicking on a Bookmark (or Comment) will expand options for deleting or renaming Bookmarks and jumping to the selected Bookmark (or Comment).

  1. Double-click on a Bookmark or Comment Node block to jump to that section of your Graph.

    When jumping to a Bookmark, the Star icon in the upper-left of the Graph will also be filled indicating you are at the Bookmark.

Quick Jump Bookmarks

In addition to creating Bookmarks, you can create a Quick Jump Bookmark, similarly to how Bookmarks work in the Level Editor Viewport . As with labeled Bookmarks in the Blueprint Editor, Quick Jump Bookmarks will persist across Editor sessions and are local to the user and machine where they were created. 

To assign and use a Quick Jump Bookmark

  1. With a Graph open, press Ctrl + 0-9 (any number key) to remember your current Blueprint, Graph location and Zoom level. 

  2. Inside any Graph, press Shift + 0-9 **(the number from previous step) to return to that Blueprint, Graph location and Zoom level.

Quick Jump Bookmarks do not require you to have the asset open and will automatically open the asset, Graph location and Zoom level (as shown in the example video below).

As of 4.21, Quick Jump Bookmarks are currently not displayed in the Bookmarks window.
