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"

Can't interact with transform gizmo in Linux UE4Editor

Clicking and dragging an axis of the transform gizmo results in my cursor snapping close to the center of the screen and not moving at all. Actually, it is bit spastic since the cursor is continuously snapping to the same location as I try to move it. This renders the gizmo unusable on Linux.

Extra information: Xubuntu 14.04, up-to-date 4.5 Git branch

I made a quick hack in my 4.4-linux branch to get around that issue, and it can be used in 4.5 as well, until we figure out a better solution:

Edit file: Engine/Source/Runtime/Core/Private/Linux/LinuxApplication.cpp and after line 265 add another line with: #if 0 ,then after line 277 add another line and add: #endif ...basically we are commenting out the entire block.

After this you will be able to move objects, although this might affect your cooked/packaged games in some unpredictable way.

Hi kmsmith,

I’m following up to see if you are continuing to experience transform widget affecting your cursor. If so, have you tried updating to the 4.6 version of the engine? This latest release contains a lot of fixes to reported bugs as well as a lot of great new features.

If you are not able to update or are still encountering the same problem after updating, please let us know by responding to this post and we will investigate the matter further.

Yeah, as Steve says, that should be fixed in 4.6.
