Why does Unreal editor keep crashing on OSX?
Hi, I'm trying to test out Unreal and Unity and educate myself on both and decide which to move forward with. Unreal Editor keeps crashing though. Last night it wouldn't even start, it just crashed on launch every time and after a restart it started working. Today it's back to crashing on every launch. I haven't been able to create and save a project yet so the project is just a new copy of the first level design tutorial in blueprint.
I've seen a number of people have been having issues with it crashing on OSX but I can't find any resolution that works. They either trail off and the thread is closed or they're old threads and people have recommended installing Yosemite, which I can't do since I'm at El Cap now and can't roll back. Otherwise the crashes are deemed to be spec related due to integrated Intel HD or iris pro gpu's.
System specs: UE 4.11.2 Late 2013 iMac OSX 10.11.4 El Capitan 3.5 Ghz i7 24 GB DDR3 RAM Nvidia GTX 780 M

Thank you for that information. After looking up the callstack in our database, it seems like this is an issue that has already been reported and is in the process of being fixed. Unfortunately I can't suggest anything to fix this at this time other than reverting back to using 4.10 in the meantime.
I'll be sure to let you know of any updates and I'll post here if I need any additional information that may help in fixing this problem.
