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"

Copying components from one blueprint to another messes up

When I copy a bunch of components from one blueprint to another the following errors happens:

  1. The names of the components are lost

  2. Although the locations remain correct, the hierarchy is destroyed.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a new blueprint and add some scene components to it

  2. Give them names and nest them in some manner, e.g. like this: Nested components

  3. Select all the components and copy them with Ctrl+C

  4. Create a new blueprint and paste the components in

  5. Observe they have no name and the hierarchy has been collapsed: Failed paste

Hi thk123,

Thank you for reporting this issue. I've placed a bug into our database for this problem. For your reference, the number is UE-16680. Unfortunately I cannot provide with you any type of workaround at the moment other than rearranging the hierarchy manually.

Have a nice day,

Matthew Clark

Hello Thom.Orahim,

It's currently marked as "To Do" so it isn't Backlogged so it may be fixed soon, but I can't make any estimations on when it would be. Unfortunately it's not a very high priority issue at the moment so it isn't getting very much attention.

Hello E951,

As we now have a good majority of our JIRA bugs marked as public, you can see the status of this report here: UE-16680.

As mentioned before, it's not a high priority at the moment but a fix should be coming.
