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 dialog box, enter your desired name and click the Add button.

Viewing and Using Bookmarks

To view or use a previously created Bookmark, select the Bookmarks option from the Window menu.

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

In the Bookmarks window, clicking the Eye icon in the upper-right corner will expand additional options. Disabling Show Comment Blocks removes Comment Nodes from being displayed in the menu.

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

For Bookmarks displayed in the window, you can right-click on a Bookmark (or Comment) to expand additional options.

The right-click context menu enables you to Delete or Rename Bookmarks, as well as to jump directly to the selected Bookmark (or Comment).

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 same 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. They 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.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
