User Guide (Version 1.16)

Modifying a UI Slice and Pushing Changes

In the UI Editor you modify UI slices and push changes the same way that you do in the main Lumberyard Editor. For more information on pushing changes in Lumberyard's component entity system, see Working with Slices.

If the currently selected entity is part of a slice instance, the Properties pane highlights in orange any properties that are different between the selected entity and the slice to which it belongs.

In addition, the UI system enforces a restriction on slice changes: A UI slice cannot contain references to any entities not within the slice.

To push local changes to the slice

  1. Right-click in the Properties pane or on selected UI elements in the Hierarchy pane.

  2. In the context menu, click Push to Slice.
