"Show metadata" option greyed out?

I’m using version 4.27.2. Also using Datasmith and Revit (2021)

I can’t seem to access the actors’ metadata… I’m quite new to Unreal and I couldn’t find anything that could help me.
Here’s what I see:

There is info on the details panel, so I’m confused.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

Hi Leigh-Man !

This is actually not the same kind of Metadata… :smile:

The first screenshot’s Metadata is asset related (tied to how the engine manages assets in the editor), while the Datasmith Metadata is tied to an actor/component instance in your scene description.

Datasmith Metadata is not tied to an asset, but to instances of that asset in your scene (accessible either through the detail panel, Blueprint/C++ or with Dataprep).

Hope this helped !


Ohh I see, thanks for the quick reply!
