view mode hotkeys don't work half the time.
The problem is that all the hotkeys to change view modes (ie, alt-4=lit, alt3=unlit, alt-6=lightmap, etc) don't work. I've had this problem in every version of UE4 I've ever tried, where sometimes the hotkeys work and sometimes they don't and I can't find what causes it. Sometimes rebooting the editor will fix it and sometimes it won't. The actual commands themselves do work of course, you just have to go use the menu to press those buttons and that's too slow. I switch view modes all the time, a good percentage of it's use is that what i'm looking at is too dark for whatever reason ranging from I haven't lit that area yet, there's out of date shadows, etc, and i can't tell what in the world is going on in front of me so I normally switch to unlit view to be able to see the problem and start working on it. Unfortunately that's not working right this second and I've seen this problem so many times that I figured I'd better get off my butt and report it. :)
btw i found how to fix the alt-numKeys in unreal. i have to go to photoshop and hit alt and then they'll start working again in unreal.

Since we have not heard back from you in a while, we are marking this post "resolved" for tracking purposes. However, if you are still encountering an issue where the hotkeys for changing view modes are functioning sporadically, please provide the information and/or project as requested above and we will continue to investigate.
