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"

Content Browser BP previews show other BPs Child Actors

When I browse through my Blueprints folders, the content browser somehow collects child actors from other Blueprints and starts displaying them in other Blueprints that have nothing to do with it.

Some of these child actors have particle effects in them etc, so the performance of the content browser completely tanks while it tries to show child actors in other BPs as well. With high amounts of child actors inside BPs, the content browser completely destroys every performance of the editor, making it unusable as long as the content folder tries to show any BP previews.

See screenshot (child actor is candle BP with particle effects, which is shown in Content Browser preview of doorframe BP (left). However, it does not exist in the doorframe BPs (right)).alt text

Hi Blue669,

Do you mean the thumbnails or actors are merging child components within the blueprint itself? if it is thumbnails this is a known issue and has been reported as UE-17453.
