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] Double clicking on selected camera moves it back

It happened on both, github and launcher versions.

version 4.9.1

Camera actor moves backwards when it is selected and you double click on its name in the list of actors in the scene.

How to reproduce: Open a project Drop a camera actor on the scene In the list of actors inside the level, find the camera and click to select it Double click that name again

Result: Camera goes back a little bit, messing up the original position.

The cause seems to be that when you double click on an object, the editor shows you that object, but if the object is a camera actor, it will try to show you that camera actor, but you are the actor so it moves the camera to show you that actor (I don't know how to explain this part better sorry).

This bug is not a big deal, except that it can mess up with camera locations and people might not even realize it and it will keep messing up their matinee cameras.

Product Version: UE 4.9

This appears to happen to any actor that has a CameraComponent attached to it, which the majority of the actors in my scene do. Double-clicking on it from either the hierarchy (World Outliner) or the Statistics window will move it out of the level with no way to undo it but manually place it back where it was. Annoying!
