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"

[4.5] Select on enum broken on reload

I'm having a problem where whenever I reload a blueprint a select node using an enum breaks. Before upon reloading it looks like this:

Broken Node

When it should look this this:

Not broken node

This happens every time I reload the editor which really impacts my workflow. I currently have this as a macro.

This seems to be something that was reported to be fixed with 4.5: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?49302-Unreal-Engine-4-5-Released! "Enums with redirects could lead to broken connections to Select nodes in a Blueprint graph on load; fixed."

I'm not entirely sure what an "Enum with redirect" means but this seems to be the same problem that I'm now having.

Edit: You can make the node expand again and selecting "Refresh nodes", but the values are missing making this feature pretty much useless.

Hi karltheawesome,

Unfortunately I have been unable thus far to reproduce this on my end. I put together a macro within a blueprint using a byte for the enum and it produces a float on the output. You can see this in the image below:

When I save, close, and re-open the editor the macro opens as the image below. Are there any additional steps I can take to reproduce this on my end?

Hi, it seems to be working again now. I'm not sure why it was happening before. If it happens again I'll try to see what steps I took for it to happen.

Hi virusescu,

Does this occur in a blank project with no additional content?
