The Palette panel displays a list of all functions and variables that can be used in Blueprints. It is fully searchable, contains a Favorites panel that you can populate with the nodes you find yourself using the most, and you can filter it to search for nodes that are compatible with a specific class type. Nodes from the Palette panel can be added into your networks by simply dragging and dropping them from the list.

Class Filtering

Sometimes it is useful to filter down the Palette to only show those nodes that are compatible with a given class type. This is done using the Class Filter dropdown. When clicked, it shows a list of all classes available in your project, similar to the Class Viewer panel. It also contains a search bar that you can use to actively filter down the list.
