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"

Actor root transform doesn't reset on root component change

As the title says, the root component transform doesn't change if you first translate and rotate a component under the default root component and then make that translated and rotated component the new root. See pictures:

  1. Start with simple actor blueprint http://i.imgur.com/XKq4Mjo.png

  2. Add capsule component and transform it about a bit http://i.imgur.com/KVLYPaD.png

  3. Make the capsule the new root http://i.imgur.com/93lN3pH.png

I was able to reproduce this issue in a clean project. I have written up a report ( UE-21010) and I have submitted it 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

I'm unsure if this is the same issue, but i posted something about a similar issue. It might be affecting more stuff than just capsules:


(Maybe you fixed so that the position is resetting when making a new root, but the rotation is still left with the changed values)
