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"

Hi atrechi,

Have you experienced an editor crash before this started occurring?

Are you creating these new projects from the Unreal Project Browser, or from inside the Editor with File>New Project? (or does the message occur with both methods?)

Does this message only occur the first time you create then open the project? Or does it occur every time you open the project thereafter?

Thanks for any additional information.

Hi all,

The following message appears when you close the editor while sub-editor windows are open, such as the Blueprint Editor the Material Editor:

Assets were open when the Editor was last closed, would you like to restore them now?

Restore Now will open those assets in the sub-editor windows again, while Don't Restore will leave them closed. There is nothing wrong with the assets; the Editor is simply asking if you want to reopen them. You can choose Don't Show This Again to make sure the project does not ask you if you would prefer.
