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"

This is a known bug for Epic, they have at least 2 tickets about this one. I cant remember the exact numbers but Ben will probably be able to find them in their jira software.

Hi ShrewGlue,

John is correct, this has been reported as JIRA UE-16433. I added the additional information from your post to that report and we will post back here with updates as we have them.

As mentioned in a forums post about this issue, "A temporary workaround is casting self through a cast node of the appropriate actor."

Let me know if that doesn't workaround the issue in the meantime.
