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"

Sockets broken on static mesh reimport

If I reimport a static mesh that already has a socket on it, the socket will remain, but it will disappear from the socket window and can no longer be edited or removed. The only way I could find to fix this was to delete the mesh altogether and import it again.

Hello Grimwolf -

I am attempting to reproduce what you are seeing and I have not had success in completely eliminating the ability to edit the socket. If I drag and drop the asset's FBX and "import" and overwrite, the small red diamond representing the socket will disappear, but opening the Socket Manager will still see and be able to edit the socket; that was the closest I got to your post.

Can you very specifically elaborate the process you are going through to replicate the issue?

Thank You

Eric Ketchum

It must've been some kind of fluke. I tried re-creating the bug, but I can't. It must've been something more obscure than simply reimporting that caused it.
