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"

Comment Color Box Forces Restart

4.12.2 I was changing comments colors and then closed the dialog box, working in a widget BP event graph. When I tried to PIE I got the error in the picture.

No comment dialog color selectino box was open and I even went through all comments created in that session and opened and closed/set their colors to no avail.

Hello Nsomnia,

I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps to reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. Could you provide screen shots of any settings/ other blueprints that may be involved?

Yeah I know the process and it seems quite random but I will try in the enxt day or so.

It seems to be on a fresh blueprint with mulitple blueprints open, make a comment in all (say 3) event graphs on nodes and then color htem one at a time. Compile them and save them. Then comment color them all and on the last one try to PIE.

Reproduction on clena project.

Create an actor class BP called BP_ActorBP Create a game instance inherited class called called GI_GameInstanceBP In BP_ActorBP actor bp create an event begin play and connect it to a print string node compile and save In GI_GameInstanceBP gameinstance bp do the same but before saving select the grey "Comment" comment and then use the color box and USE THE COLOR PICKER and select the dark red color from the event beginplay node. Ok that color Select the color again and choose a custom opacity I used 0.5 and copy the color code. Compiel and save GI_GameinstanceBP Paste the color code into the BP_ActorBP grey comment box color picker and hit ok then compile and save Go back to GI_GameInstanceBP and try to PIE. You get the error.

Everytime for me.

Seems to be selecting with the color picker causes that error forcing a restart. As if the color picker box isnt removed from the top of heap/active window && just hidden or something.

I have run through the steps provided several times and I was unable to reproduce this issue on our end. Would it be possible for you to provide a sample project that produces this error?

Will do asap with a video. Very annoying when commenting on team projects but maybe I'm the only one. Tried verifying engkne files twice.
