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"

[Bug] Any folder named Windows gets uppercased to WINDOWS

Branch: Binary from Unreal Launcher and also happens in the Source build.

Build: 4.1.0-2053896

Issue: When I create a folder with the name of Windows the Editor automatically changes all of the text to uppercase in the Scene Outliner. In other words, Windows becomes WINDOWS as the folder name and cannot be changed. When working on architectural projects, creating a folder named Windows will be common place.

Expected behavior: Create a folder named Windows with the ability to retain first letter upper and the remaining as lower case text.

Repro Steps: 1. Create a folder named Windows and the Editor will automatically change all of the Windows text to uppercase WINDOWS in the Scene Outliner.

Occurrence: 100% of the time in any default template or custom project.

System Specs: Windows 8.0 Pro 64-bit, Intel i7 940 2.93 GHz, 24 GB RAM, X58 EVGA, GeForce GTX 680, Driver 334.89, DirectX 11.0, HT OMEGA Claro Halo XT sound card
