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"

Can't save, Graph is linked to private object(s) in an external package.

Hello, Below the message I get when I try to save from the editor.

**Can't save ../../../../../../Users/Name/Documents/Unreal Projects/DissertationTesting/Content/FirstPersonBP/Maps/FirstPersonExampleMap.umap: Graph is linked to private object(s) in an external package. External Object(s): MySaveGame_C_1 /Engine/Transient

Try to find the chain of references to that object (may take some time)?**

What I do is basically draw a render target and save the variable using a Bluetility so that once I play the render target is loaded in the proper object, if I don't load it up from file, when I press play it just clean and reset the render target.

All my blueprint save without any issue but the .umap is giving me error.

Any clue?

Hey davi211,

This sort of error can be caused by a few different things, which can often make it difficult to track down. What I would recommend doing is spending some time looking over other threads to see if any other users have a solution for your issue, as it is likely specific to a certain asset.

Here's a link where I performed a search for your error. Instead of linking the numerous threads here, I figured it would be easier for you to browse the search filter yourself.


Let me know if you have any further questions regarding this, or if you come up with a repro case for the issue and I'll be glad to continue investigating.

Have a great day

Hi Sean,

I just found the reason, Basically I was trying to save my "save game" blueprint in a variable which in the picture is Save T.

However once I got rid of it it started to work no problem. alt text
