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"

Is there a way to make editors open in a new tab in the same window?

If I double-click on an asset it will open its editor in a new window, so I usually drag the tab into the original window.

Is there a checkbox somewhere that I can tick to make new tabs automatically stay in the same original window?

Because I prefer to control-tab within ue4 and save my alt-tabs for chrome or other programs.

It use to work... Under EDITOR PREFS in the GENERAL-APPEARANCE if the OPEN ASSET EDITOR TABS IN A NEW WINDOW is unchecked it would do just that... Not sure what happened...??

Having the same issue at 4.12, the option under General -> Appearance just disappeared...

For version 4.12+ you can do this: alt text

Before 4.12 you only need to check a check box in the same menu.

In version 4.9.2 it worked fine... If that is UNCHECKED it will open in a TAB, not a new Window. SO, our friends at Epic need to log a bug. Posting as an ANSWER and I will create a BUG REPORT...

I was wrong... The above works on all editors but the animation.

Faced this issue in 4.11.0 preview 6 with the blueprint editor of a PayerController subclass. Added comment with desktop recording to the corresponding bug report: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/283632/opening-project-puts-some-tabs-in-second-window.html
