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"

Can no longer save files when running without source control

With 4.7 I could click the Source Control button, change Source Control settings and choose to Run Without Source Control. I was then able to save and move files as I wanted in my previously source control enabled project.

With 4.8 I can still Run Without Source Control, but when I want to make changes the following window pops up and I can't save anything even while I disabled source control:

How can I work around this?

Hi MisterMonday -

You should be able to mark the asset's checkbox and then Make Writable. Have you tried this?

Let me know -

Oops, I totally missed this. I was so used to the old work flow where not being connected to source control meant that I could just save anything without being asked. The blueprint search indexing function asked me to check out files even while I was disconnected and was working with files that were not even on the server or marked for add, so that got me confused. That and a lack of coffee.

Thanks and sorry for this question. Please convert your comment to an answer as I fail to see how to do this too!
