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"

UMG UWidget Variables can have the same names, causes crash on save

Using 4.11 P6

It's currently possible to have widgets in the UMG editor that have identical names, and have them as variables. For obvious reasons this shouldn't be allowed (like it was previously), and if you try to save the asset after having two widgets that had the same name (even if you rename them!) the editor will crash with a very uninformative call stack (didn't even hit a breakpoint in code).

In previous versions of the engine it would not allow you to name two widgets with the same name, and copy-pasting would rename them automatically to some safe name. As this doesn't happen anymore, it crashes the editor.

Had a look at the logs, got a very interesting report. Seems like there are multiple instantiated versions of this widget causing issues?
