Legacy:Actor Context Menu
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This context menu appears when an Actor is right-clicked in an UnrealEd Viewport. A more specialized menu appears on brushes and movers: see Brush Context Menu.
For UnrealEd Interface menus in other windows and context menus, see UnrealEd Menus.
For more on working with actors, see Actor Overview.
- <class> properties
- opens the floating actor properties window for this actor or group of actors.
- commands to show mover polygons in the BSP & change the keyframe. See mover.
- Reset ->
- reset rotation, pivot, scaling or all. Use the reset rotation command as frequently as possible to avoid gimbal lock errors

see also Brush Transformation.
- Mirror About X: When a pivot is selected, mirrors the brush on x axis.
- Mirror About Y: When a pivot is selected, mirrors the brush on y axis.
- Mirror About Z: When a pivot is selected, mirrors the brush on z axis.
- Transform Permanently: Makes any scale changes/other changes to the brush permanent. Resets changed values back to 0.
Note on the mirror commands: the axis is the normal to the plane of reflection, not the plane of reflection itself (common mistake when thinking in a 2D viewport)
