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"

Copy paste crashes

There are a lot of ways you can crash the editor simply by copy pasting names. Basically everywhere you can enter a name, asset name, variable name etc. it will likely crash when you try to copy paste something in it. This is because UE4 keeps dumping logs and whatnot in the copy paste cache, that copy paste text is then usually very long and too much for UE4 to handle when pasting it in a name. I know of this bug yet I keep using copy paste because I'm just too used to it, something so simple crashing the engine is really annoying.

This happens sometimes when you use connected assets, like blueprint code which uses additional custom components.

Also this might be a bug related to your UE version, maybe consider upgrading. Basic copy/past doesnt appears to be a big issue in 4.10.

copy and paste crashes my 4.13 editor every single time, I saw someone who had a similar post in an old version of the editor. He said using copy and paste through menus instead of shortcuts helped him. That crashes mine too. Very odd because I've deleted and recompiled UE4 from source, but to no avail. I wonder if it has something to do with both my drives being solid states.
