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"

[4.7.6] UMG Widget Replace Crash

I came across this bug by chance, but I can successfully reproduce it anywhere, including blank projects.


  1. Create a blank widget

  2. Add a Border Widget (from Common) to the [Canvas Panel]

  3. Rename the border to "Background"

  4. Right click Background in Hierarchy and choose "Replace with Canvas Panel"

  5. Add an Image Widget (from Common) to the original [Canvas Panel]

  6. Rename the image to "Background" (notice there is no error saying that Background is already taken)

  7. Crash

Have not tried this in 4.8 Preview builds.

Product Version: UE 4.7
