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"

Clicking only selects surface - Mac

Mac OSX v.4.14.2-3241561+++UE4+Release-4.14

I'm currently following the official Unreal beginner tutorials on YouTube as precisely as possible, and am running into a frustrating issue. The tutorial calls to create walls by copy/pasting Boxes (Geometry > Box). For me, when left-clicking on an item, only the surface is selected and it doesn't function the same as the tutorial (figured out that Command-Click was the way to select multiples, but still having issues), especially when using a Subtractive Brush Type. If I start each wall from scratch, I can get the Subtractive to work properly, however once placed it can't be selected again except in the World Outliner. I've had two other people follow the tutorial as well (one of whom has trained UE4 experience), all with the exact same results.

I've searched through the forums and found other references to what appears to be the same issue, some with fixes, some without. No matter what I try nothing works. • made sure Subtractive was created after all Additive • made sure Settings > Allow Translucent Selection was unchecked • restarted and completely created new project from scratch

Any suggestions? Thanks!
