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] 4.10 Hidden BSP brush blocks selection of other brushes behind it


Steps to reproduce:

1) Create empty map

2) Place 2 BSP boxes next to each other

3) Position the viewport camera in such a way that Box1 blocks view of Box2

4) Hide Box1 from World Outliner

5) Try to select Box2 in the viewport

Notice that Box2 can't be selected in the viewport if the view is blocked by Box1(even though it's hidden).

Additional info:

  • This doesn't seem to happen to other types of actors that are behind the brush. For example, a static mesh can be selected through the hidden brush.

  • This happens both in Perspective and any of the orthographic viewports

Thanks for the help.

I dont think so, maybe in the version 4.11 they will fix that.

Hi JohnRossPorter,

I just checked UE-23433 and it has been fixed internally. It is marked as 4.11, so keep an eye out for the release notes!

Hi George_Cristian_Tudor,
