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"

Hi connormurry,

I wasn't able to reproduce a crash by moving a parent Blueprint instance to a folder, neither in the World Outliner nor in the Content Browser. I have a few questions to help us narrow down the problem:

  1. Can you reproduce the crash in the same project?

  2. Can you reproduce the crash in a new project?

  3. Are you moving the parent to a folder in the World Outliner or the Content Browser?

  4. Does this happen with any Actor Blueprint Parent/Child combination, or only with specific classes?

Please also find the log from your project after this crash occurs. The log can be found in your project's Saved\Logs folder. Thanks!

Hi connormurry,

Have you been able to try this in a clean project yet? Does the same crash occur when you do? Additionally, Do you mean that you are moving an actor in the world outliner to a new folder within the world outliner or are you moving objects that are referenced in the world outliner within the content browser?

Hi everyone,

Thank you for the additional information, grubby. I was able to reproduce this on my end in 4.8.3. However, It appears this has already been fixed as of 4.9 P2.

I experienced a similar problem:

When a point light is attached to a static mesh as a child, and I try to drag the static mesh (in the World Outliner) into a folder (also in the World Outliner), the editor crashes.

This also happened in a blank project.

Version: 4.8.3
