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"

4.6 changing material in details panel hides rest of materials in list

This bug doesn't happen in 4.4 or 4.5

Importing a (rigged?) object and changing a material in the details panel has the panel stop showing the rest of the materials in the list. Changing more materials doesn't further shorten the list, so changing the last material when you first create the object "fixes" it. The missing materials still render, and they can be changed in the mesh editor, but the details panel seems to forget all about them.

This doesn't seem to happen with every object, so I'm enclosing a simple 200k object that shows the bug. Create a new, empty blueprint project, import untitled.fbx (6.1 ASCII format), which is a rigged head with 3 materials. Change the middle material in the details panel and the last material is no longer shown in the list.

Yes, that does look like the same cause. Should be a simple fix for 4.6.1

Hey Brain Westley -

I cannot directly speak to whether Pierdek's issue is the exact same issue, however the issue you are describing has been fixed in an internal branch of the engine. I also cannot confirm if this fix got into the 4.6.1 branch if not it should be fixed, baring complications, in 4.7.0

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
