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"

3D Widget not visible in editor 4.13

Hello, I've just moved my project over from 4.12 to 4.13. I've been using 3D Widgets as a sort of pop up sign to show when the player is near to something they can interact with.

It all works in 4.12 but now I've moved over to 4.13 the 3D Widgets don't show in the editor window. They work fine when playing in the editor window. It's making setting them up in the right places far more long winded than it used to be.

So far I've tried making a new widget from scratch and recompiling the game in Visual Studio.

Product Version: UE 4.13

This is very strange, I just checked the "Show FPS" box in the editor window and now the 3D Widgets are visible.

I Just experienced the same issue with exact the same fix. Could this be a 4.13 bug?

I had the same problem and surprisingly toggling the Show FPS caused the widgets to appear again. This is with UE 4.14.3.
