Vectors and Rotators are multi-value properties that display numeric inputs for each of their components laid out horizontally.

Vector

Vectors are properties that are used to store compound data that is ideally represented by three individual Float values, such as a location in space or scale.

Each of the Float values (X, Y, and Z) in a Vector property is displayed as a numeric input box that can be modified using direct input from the keyboard or you can click the Left Mouse Button and drag horizontally to quickly modify each value.

Rotator

Rotators are properties that are specifically designed to store rotations using three Float values limited to the range [0.0, 360.0], which represents the degrees of the rotation around each axis.

Each of the Rotator values (X, Y, and Z mapped to Roll, Pitch, and Yaw respectively) is displayed as a numerical spinner. Values can be manually set using direct input from the keyboard or you can click the Left Mouse Button and drag horizontally to quickly modify each value.

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.
