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"

Linux: UE4 Editor crashes when importing fbx over existing static mesh

Hey Robert42-

Thank you for letting us know about this crash. I was able to reproduce this on my end and have submitted a bug report (UE-13605) for further investigation. As a workaround it appears that, when importing the FBX the first time, if you select "Import All" then re-importing the mesh will not cause a crash.
