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"

Hello Dannyk90,

I was unable to reproduce this issue on our end. I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps to reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. What this project upgraded from an older version of the engine?

  1. Strangely enough I can't.

  2. It's all it is.. just copying and pasting a vertical box crashed it.

  3. Nope.

Hello Dannyk90,

I have a few more questions for you.

Additional questions:

  1. Just to be clear, is this issue still occurring in the project that you are currently using?

  2. If so, does the crash still occur when moving the widget to another project via migrating the asset?

  3. Could you provide a project/asset that produces this crash?

  1. Yes.

  2. Yes it still crashes trying to copy and paste the vertical box when moving assest to a different project.

  3. Attached is the asset with the problem.link text

Try to copy and paste one of the friend boxes as shown in the top picture and you will see it crashes.

Hello Dannyk90,

After doing a bit of digging with the asset that was provided I found that the crash is due to having periods in the names of your vertical boxs. I have written up a report ( UE-19542) saying that an error should be given when trying to place periods in the names. I have sent this report to the developers for further consideration. I will provide updates with any pertinent information as it becomes available. Thank you for your time and information.

Make it a great day
