Unreal Editor freezes, crashes when mouse goes over a tooltip
Unreal Editor 4.7.6 on Mac OS 10.10.3 freezes, sometimes crashes, when the mouse cursor goes over a tooltip. It usually happens in a blueprint and material editors. When dragging a node, if the cursor goes over a tooltip, the editor freezes for a minute. If you try to click anywhere during the freeze, the editor usually crashes. After the first freeze, nothing like that ever happens during the current season. Tested with the Apple mouse and any USB or wireless mice.

Taking a look at your system specs and your RAM as well as your VRAM (Graphics Card Memory) is right below the minimum recommended specs. With only 4 GB of RAM and 512 MB of VRAM, your computer will have hitches and crash when running multiple tasks or somewhat heavy processing. This explains why the engine is crashing when you are dragging nodes or working within the material editor and hovering over a tooltip.
