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"

I have found out what cause the problem! A bluetooth sender here.

This is the exact same problem I am having, too. I even installed three seperate engines to see if that would change anything.

What did you do to fix this?

Hi Red Vanquish,

While reinstalling the engine worked for wakakuki (but not for you), the second comment leads me to believe this may be linked to a peripheral connected to your machine. Try disconnecting all but your keyboard and mouse and restart your system. Also make sure your drivers for your mouse and keyboard are up to date, especially if you are using a third party gaming mouse and/or keyboard.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, please post a copy of your dxdiag here.

Thanks,

Steve H.

I'm currently using 4.16.2 and am having this exact problem and cannot figure out how to fix it. I have absolutely no plugins, no Bluetooth controllers or wireless mice or anything. Software was working fine, I was in the middle of making a game, then I suddenly couldn't type when I right clicked in the node area, and cannot select anything, it just shoots up to the top. I have reinstalled Unreal twice and even tried installing an old version 5.15.3 to no avail.

I have deducted the problem.

After careful analysis, looking through my system preferences, reinstalling software, and coming up with the same issues, I found out the issue was a Bluetooth based Application.

For Mac Users, it should be noted to be wary of any third party apps that use bluetooth, if this exact problem occurs.

In my case, a third party app called ControllerMate was the issue. The application is known for saving control binds for wireless controllers that You set up, and the settings stay enabled in the background when the app is shut off. In my case, I uninstalled the application using its Uninstallation program, and since then, I have had no problems with Unreal.

Thank you for the in depth explanation of the Bluetooth conflict. I am upgrading this to the answer to this question.
