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"

Slightly Moving Objects When I Use Ctrl + W

When I am duplicating an object in my scene using Ctrl + W it will slightly move the duplicated version on the X axis seems to be every time, It's not that bad unless you are doing it a lot then it is extremely time-consuming and painful (like when I'm having to place literally millions of cylinders). Is there a way to fix this or is it just a bug?

Bump, this is a very frustrating time waster when your talking about duplicating thousands of items

I have the same problem, it seems to be a bug. The amount it moves depends on the "Position Grid Snap value" When I disable it, it doesn't move. I have this bug in UE4 version 4.21.2

when i started working on my Projekt there was no moving when copying. It also appears in new projects.

That just moves the object for me, and Shift + Drag moves the object and takes the camera with it, and ctrl + drag just moves it again...
