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"

[Bug] Editor keyboard bindings doesn't allow overriding already bound shortcut.

When I go to the Editor Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts panel and try to set a shortcut that is already bound to a different command, the red hint that's supposed to be displayed is only visible for a single second and the Override button doesn't seem to do anything. Here's a short video:


This is the message that is only displayed for a single frame:

alt text

Also, "Override" isn't really unambiguous. What's supposed to happen when you click that button? Simply force the new shortcut, resulting in two actions being bound to the same shortcut? Assign the new shortcut and remove the conflicting one?

Hi Bajee,

Thanks for clarifying this is occurring on a MAC. With this information I have entered the following bug: JIRA [UE-20884]. When this is corrected we will add an update to this post.

Thanks again for the feedback!

Hi Bajee,

When trying to reproduce this issue, typing in "Alt+B" results in this: alt text

If I try and reassign the "Alt+B" I get the following, but the message does not "disappear" after a single frame, but stays constant:

alt text

If you'll provide you're exact repro steps (that I can reprodcuce here), I will enter this as a bug. As for the Override button, it functions as such: If you select "Override," the function that is currently assigned to those keys is assigned "no" key binding, allowing you to bind those keys to the function you'd like.

I'm not sure how much more exact I can describe it. If I do what you did, the red text disappears immediately. Did you watch the video I posted in the report? The only thing I can think or right now, is that I'm on a Mac, maybe you could try that? (I'm using the 4.9 binary release)
