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"

Launcher alwasy starts the last project

I can't remember having this problem in the past, but I don't use the launcher that much, however recently I needed to create a new dummy project and I noticed that I can not start the pure Unreal Editor from the launcher anymore.

Every time I click on the engine version I want and "Launch" it starts the last project I selected from the list of previous projects.

Without starting the original editor, I can't create new projects anymore. What is going on?

Perhaps you accidentally have enabled the option "Always load project on startup" in the "Unreal Project Browser" dialog.

You can to disable this option to deactivate the automatic loading of the last project in "Editor Preferences"

Yes this seems to be checked by default now. I unchecked and then saved the new setting as default after telling the Editor to make the standard settings writable. This helps, thanks alot

Open the editor, then go "File"->"Open project..", you will get a popup project browser, where you can uncheck that "Load last opened project on startup" option.

I was trying to use "new Project" and got nothing. Just the "Open Project" option has this checkbox (just for someone who reads it here after haha) (this on 4.18.3)

You can open your current project, then go to File -> new project. I noticed it started doing this a few weeks ago, it's a bit annoying but this solution works perfectly fine.
