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"

Can't take it anymore. Driving me nuts! How can I prevent it from opening off screen like this?

Thank you Eric.

Another thing: It seems that the old color picker crash is back as well..

I have to edit about 100 lights, based on 2 Lights inside a BP. Horrible, i am sitting here for ages now - setting one light..save..setting one light, save - because the color picker is closing everytime i type in another color. The HEX field copy paste is working one or two times, then i get an instant crash. Since we're deep in production - its a real time killer at the moment. :(

I have to add that UE4 is crashing randomly after two-three color pick entries. Nothing to see inside the crash log.

Hello -

I am going to try to reproduce this, but can you post the crash reporter generated Machine ID?

Thank You

Not sure how to, here is a screen of the crash.

How i crashed - Basic information:

  1. Blueprint Actor with one Asset and two lights.

  2. Blueprint Actor placed several times on the map (some pipe structure)

  3. Clicked on one BP Actor, selected two lights.

  4. Opened the color picker

  5. Changed a random number, last time it was for blue

  6. crash

Update: I am able to reproduce it. When i just click one light, its alright - no crash. Got two different light colors. When i click both again, i get the ability to extend the coloring tab and enter a number for another color > crash.

Ok you can reproduce it easily:

Create a light, convert to blueprint

You will see that the color picker is half off screen and i closing when you change color or enter numbers

Add a second light to it, select both

When you try to change color, Endboss appears and casts crash damage +9999.
