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"

New projects are missing launch button

I've ran into this problem where all of my new projects are missing their launch buttons. My old ones still have it, but I had even lost it on one I was currently working on.

Missing Launch Button

I am working on a mobile game and need to constantly be launching this on my phone to see how things are turning out and how my UI looks, so its very important I get this back.

I have tried closing and reopening the toolbar, changing the size of my icons back to large, and restarting the program. None of these have worked.

Fixed it!

I had to go and copy the config file from 4.13 and paste it into 4.14, and delete the one already there. Even though the 4.14 file said the bShowLaunchMenus was set to true, it was somehow corrupt and didn't show, but adding in a fresh, default config fixed the problem.

From there, I modified to default again, but much more carefully this time, and everything is working now.

Hmm. You are also missing the text. What happens if you restore the text to the buttons?

Nothing /: The text is gone only because they were set to small icons.

Hi,

Please check if you are changing bShowLaunchMenus to false in any of your ini files (Game or Saved config directories) as that variable decides if the launch button should be created or not. This variable is set to true by default in BaseEditorPerProjectUserSettings.ini (under the [/Script/EditorStyle.EditorStyleSettings] category) and isn't changeable through the editor interface.

Hope that helps. Cheers,

Unbelievable, its set to true. That should have done the trick, I can't imagine there being any place to check.
