    so how do you go about putting a cat on your blueprint editor background?

    That would be cool! Grid snapping could still be active, just without the visible grid (optionally). I thought that UMG grid uses the same logic for drawing these lines, I'm also quite surprised that it's not.

    Dunno, I don't find it useful, same as removing grid in bp editor. But you guys seems happy about it.

    Thats why we have an enable / disable checkbox.

    It's useful for taking screenshots of your User Interface (especially if you have transparency). 4.14 already has a toggle to enable/disable the widget bounding boxes (G on keyboard), and tbh I'm surprised the widget viewport doesn't draw from the same values as the blueprint graph.

    Imho the new look without grids should be on by default, many people probably don't even know about this possibility. What's your thoughts?
    +1

    We need more BP visual customisation options too...
    Like the ability to change the look of wires & nodes...
    To help differentiate variables form node spaghetti...
    How hard can that be for the talented team at Epic?

    I'd be happy if all nodes would have the same size.
    Array Nodes are immensly larger than normal nodes and causing the Execute path to be uneven.

    Just FYI, possibility to turn off the grid is already available in 4.13 Preview! It's under Editor Preferences -> Appearance.
    It's eye soothing - and it brings clearer readability indeed! Great job, thanks!

    PS. No default cats yet

    Well, it could serve as a substitute for Rubber Duck Debugging Cute Kitten Debugging.

    Can Epic devs bring a menu option to turn on/off Blueprint grids please ?
    Without grids , it brings a better readability.
    Thank you.

    Whoa... This is amazing!
    Sexy, indeed. Actually... Both the pure-dark and pure-cat backgrounds look very sexy!
