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 Mulldoon,

I am currently unable to get the editor to freeze or open a random asset by selecting it in the Content Browser. Can you provide more specific information about the project your working with when this happens. For instance, does this happen when you are in the Third Person Project with assets -or does this happen with your own project with your own personal assets? Please provide this and any additional information you can think of.

it can be both UE'S Assets and my own. it mainly happens when i try to add a texture to an asset or drag one of my assets into the world. the weird thing is it can be ok for ages then just not work properly for a hour.

there is a possibility it is my system being a jerk

Hi Mulldoon,

Thanks for the response. I am researching a similar crash across three or four AnswerHub posts but have not be able to create an reliable repro for our developers to tackle.

Next time you experience a crash, please copy and post the callstack here (The information in the Crash Reporter window) then hit the submit button on the crash report. Additionally, please send a copy of your dxdiag as this may correspond with a certain graphics card (or some other hardware issue.)
