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"

Replacing UMG Widget and recreating same variable name crashes editor

So to repro I have a UMG widget child in the designer marked as a variable named SomeChild

I use this variable in some blueprint

Next I decide to replace the widget with a different type of widget. It deletes the variable, probably because my variable is no longer the same type.

I Mark the child as a variable again and type in the same variable name for it. Editor crashes after I try to compile or click something else.

In the C++ the error message says something about renaming over an existing object.

I have to restart the editor to ensure that after I replace my widget that I can rename it back to its original variable name without the editor crashing.
