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 was recently fixed in main, and will be rolled out in 4.9. Thanks for the report!

I just had this issue too. Seems like everyone is going to be frustrated by this one. I have to close all my open tabs with blueprints every time I want to vr preview? That works, but that's going to be a pain. Tell me if I'm wrong.

Hello sgehrman,

As Nick said, this issue has been fix in main (4.9) branch. If you have a source build of the engine you could try cherry picking this fix and integrating it into your project. I have provided a link to the commit below. I hope that this information helps.
