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"

Deleting empty folders does not remove them

Removing folders does not actually remove them. Not only they remain on a hard drive, but they also remain in the project.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a new folder called "Test" in Content

  2. Create new blank material inside of the Test folder

  3. Save project

  4. Move your new blank material into any other folder,

  5. Save project

  6. Close UE

  7. Re-open your project

  8. Test folder is back in!

[edit] It's fixed now in 4.14.

Product Version: UE 4.13

Hi MarcinW,

I followed your repro steps above, however, you do not mention to delete the original "Test" folder after moving the material to, in my case, the "Test2" folder so, of course, "Test" folder does still exist upon re-opening the editor. At this point I deleted "Test" folder, closed the Editor and re-opened it. Now the original "Test" folder does not appear. Instead, only "Test2" containing the material "Test_Mat" remains. Tested with an empty blueprint project.

Result: Works as expected.

If you can update your steps and fill in areas I might have missed like, Is it a Third Person Blueprint Project? Does it have to have Starter Content? etc. I will retest and enter a bug report accordingly.

*Be sure you are testing in the latest preview version of UE4.14 (Preview 3)
