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"

Window Tab Collapsed in Torn out Window is Inaccessable under Window Context Menu

Inaccessible Orange Arrow under certain window layouts:

An easy way to reproduce this issue is the following:

(Reset the layout so you can follow along)

1: In the main UE4 interface, click on the little orange arrow to show the view port window tab.

2: Tear the tab out of the main window so it becomes a separate floating window outside the main interface window.

3: Right click the tab and click "Hide Tab"

Now... attempt to click the orange arrow to show the view port tab again, the Context menu "U" symbol is in the way and it is not possible to click the orange arrow underneath.

Possible Solution: Move the "U" context right as to expose the Orange Triangle underneath.

Affected Versions: 4.5.1 and earlier.

Product Version: Not Selected

Hey Quade2002-

Thank you for reporting this issue. I was able to reproduce this problem and have submitted it to our internal tracking database for further investigation (UE-5589). If you still need to redock the viewport window you can click Windows->Viewports and select a different viewport (viewport 3 for example). This should open a new viewport with the tab showing that you can then redock.

I am resurrecting this thread, but this seems to still be an issue with the latest version. I have hidden the tab of the "modes" window, and it's impossible to get it back.
