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"

[Closed] FBX Importer Dialog broken

When I import an .FBX file and then flag the Import as Skeletal option, all options inside the Mesh section vanish and only an empty Skeleton field appears.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Import an .fbx file

  • Flag Import as Skeletal

  • Unflag Import Mesh

  • Unflag Import as Skeletal

After these steps, the importer dialog should be damaged for good inside the project and behave like the description I gave.

Restarting UE4 doesn't help. Creating a new project brings the dialog back to normal, but as soon as I perform the steps above, the dialog gets crazy again.

Hi SyMutex,

You're correct. This was a bug with 4..6-4.7 when the FBX importer window layout changed.

It was reported with UE-4857 and is fixed with 4.8.

The workaround for anyone using 4.7 or 4.6 that had this happen can fix it by doing the following:

Go to the project folder > Saved > Config > Windows > EditorUserSettings.ini locate line bImportMesh=False and change this to bImportMesh=True to get get the option back.
