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"

UMG:widget blueprint contained animated one can't be saved?

Hi, In 4.5, If widget blueprint A contained a widget blueprint B has animation within it, widget blueprint A can't be saved? If I delete the animation in widget blueprint B, or delete the instance in widget blueprint A, I can save it. Here is the error info:

Can't save D:/Work/UE4/MainMenu_Auto6.uasset: Graph is linked to private object(s) in an external package. External Object(s): ScaleButton_INST
Try to find the chain of references to that object (may take some time)?

Is this a bug?

I'm having the same problem. I am using my own widgets inside other widgets to keep things modularized and the animations prevent them from being saved. I can't package the project either.

Hi alonezhby,

Can you show me your widget setup for both widgets as well as how you are calling them into your level? I have been unable to reproduce this on my end.

Here is the case: ButtonA widget has a scale animation, Mainmenu widget contain one ButtonA instance in it. Mainmenu widget can't be saved: alt text

Hello alonezhby,

I have tried to reproduce the issue and was unable to do so on my end. If you could send me a copy of the uassest that is causing the error I would be happy to take a closer look at it.
