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"

Various Blueprint actions Freeze Editor


  • Changing function inputs/outputs in blueprints freezes the editor for over a minute and continuously increases memory usage.

  • Compiling a blueprint takes longer and longer for each subsequent compile even if no changes were made. For example, one blueprint went from ~100ms compile to ~200ms, then ~400, then ~700ms, etc.

  • The freezing resets after deleting the Intermediate directory, however, this does not fix the above issues.

  • These issues seem to only affect blueprints of a certain type. Namely Actors, and Scene Components (possibly Actor Components, didn't test). The issues are also shared between blueprints of the listed types. For example, compile times will increase across blueprints of the listed types. This hints at an issue with the parent classes.

I have attempted to reproduce this issue, but have not been able to do so.

  • Are you seeing this in a clean project?

  • Could you please provide your dxdiag?

  • Is this only occurring in the 4.12 Preview?
