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"

Moving asset folder results in unresponsive editor

Moving an asset folder (Luos's Modular Rocks & Caves from market), in 4.10.4 results in an unresponsive editor. First i tried to move the entire folder (a few gb), then single sub folders, and hangs on moving material folder. Windows 10 task manager still shows some activity of the process. To inform the user, the progress bar should show some signs of activity, otherwise it is hard to estimate if the client system hangs, or processes in the background still work. The package was newly added.

Task uses a bit over a gigabyte of memory (entire system mem usage is 41%)

Update After 15 minutes with no change in the progress bar, the moving finished. [1]: /storage/temp/80254-error.jpg

Hello, Luos here :)

The material folder is huge, having around more than 500 references from material instances to the meshes, and all the material instances are references towards the main master material. And thats only one part of even more things going on. As someone who recently had to move thousands of files, updating asset references can take quite a while.

I do suggest that after every folder you moved around in the content browser, you right-click on your main folder in the content browser and select "fix up re-directors" if you dont, you will end up having re-directors redirecting re-directors.

I didnt notice your update comment, just did. Glad the moving finished, and I hope it works fine!

If not, send me an email with skype contact, and I'll try to give more personal help :)

Thanks Luos, fixed up the redirectors, everything works just fine. Love the easy way to place the pre-made modules.
