Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[BUG] Autosave doesnt save packages

I have autosave enabled with Save Content checked. However it only saves map i think because i can still see the asterisk sign on my assets in Content Browser. (I can see progress bars and all)

Product Version: Not Selected

Hi Satheesh,

While you have the Save Content option enabled, modified assets are saved as back-ups in the same way that your maps are saved. These backup are located in yourProject/Saved/Autosaves and save as either .uasset files for assets and .umap files for maps.

These only save backups, and do not "Save" your primary asset.

I hope that helps.

Hi Satheesh,

This is not a bug. Autosave is intended to only save maps, not content. Your auto-saved maps can found be in project/Saved/Autosaves.

Also remember, there are no "packages" in UE4, just content assets. ;)

Cheers!

Thanks Stephen. So one doubt. What does the Save Content do?

I apologize for not reading your original question thoroughly. I missed that you had Save Content enabled. Please see my new answer. And thank you for bringing this to my attention as I identified two issues with the feature.
