Interacting with Windows in VR Mode

There are a number of different ways you can interact with panels and windows in VR Mode. Each window has a black bar along the bottom edge called the grip that can be used to "grab" the window and manipulate it.

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.
