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"

Material editor does not open, Static mesh editor does not open

Hello! So this is very disturbing, i am working with UE more than a year now, and i never faced such a bug before. A week ago my unreal went mad, and stopped to open the static mesh editor... It gets stuck like in the linked image (see it below).. I am using Nvidia GTX Titan X Intel i7 5960X cpu 32 GB ram Windows 7 I tried to uninstall and reinstall unreal.. It worked for 5 mins then it stopped to work again. Any ideas why this can be? btw. If i build the project from the github branch it works fine, but unfurtonately i cannot go with the github branch forever, becouse of many reasons(some cutom plugins etc.. ) Best regards Előd S.

Hey elodakielod,

Try going into the 'Window' menu in the editor and selecting the 'Reset Layout' to see if that fixes the issue.

This seems like a very specific issue to your project or engine version. Can you reproduce this issue in a blank project created from the launcher?

Hey! Thx for the fast answer. So first i crated a blank project, and it didnt work, but then i was using the reset layout as you suggested. It works now! Thank you! What could have caused this issue out of the sudden? :) I hope it wont come back, if it does im keeping you updated about it. This was a good ending for my workday! thx :D

Sometimes simply re-arranging windows and accidentally closing them can happen. This is why we have the reset layout option just in case you cannot open or locate your windows. I am glad you were able to get your project back up and running as expected :)
