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"

[Feature Request] allow only one editor instance per project

Yesterday I had this sad adventure with UE4 when due to slow project load or some other reason I got it opened in 2 editor instances which I didn't notice. To my dismay I've started to move assets between folders which lead to breaking references as some of the assets were opened in second editor instance and failed to save. Trying to open affected blueprints crashes the editor. This could be easily avoided if editor would allow itself only one instance per project. No point having two instances at same time anyways, is there?

btw2 Unity has it ;p

Not sure if it counts as different projects, but I often have different checkouts of the same project open at the same time to merge Blueprint changes. (When I made some local changes while the asset was locked by someone else.)
