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"

Blueprint context search input starts unactivated.

Whenever I right click on blueprint editor, I used to be able to write directly as it started with text input activated. But right now (after updating to 4.11) every time I open blueprint context menu, I also have to click into text box (or press tab 3 times) and only then I can search. It is really frustrating.

Here another user has same problem but posted in the wrong section.

By the way, I use OS X.

Product Version: UE 4.11

It seems this problem happens in other places as well. For example when selecting variable type, I used to be able to just write float. Now I have to click on text box to be able to write.

Hi Clnk_Ibrahim,

Thank you for your report. THis is a known issue and has been entered into our system as UE-29885.

Its been a while now and this is still broken in 4.12.4. I realise use OSX owners may be a little low priority but it seriously, seriously impedes working in the editor. I have also been looking for the two UE numbers the github checkins and not seem them. Is this now something that won't be fixed for 4.12?

Hi, just piping up that this is still happening in 4.12 preview builds :(

hi Anadin,

UE-29885 turned out to be a duplicate of UE-29024. UE-29024 is still under assessment by the development staff. Unfortunately, I do not have a timeframe of when a fix will be implemented.

Thanks Adam, thats a little sad :(, it really does make working very hard. The flow now is right click, move mouse, left click, then type. I guess there is no way to track this for us outside of looking for the bug numbers in git?

Hey Anadin,

I've looked into the issue for you, which is UE-29024. This issue is currently being investigated by our developers, and the fix should be available in the future 4.13 release.

Have a great day
