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"

Copy Paste And Duplication not working bug

This Appears to be extremely random, but sometimes or all the time copying pasting and duplicating do not work. Sometimes the short cuts don't work, but the menu does. Sometimes the Cut will work, but will not paste. Sometimes the Duplication function works, other times IT will just flash the screen for a second, and nothing shows up. Sometimes when I restart my computer it acts normal. Sometimes it doesn't work period and I just have to start ALL over on a secondary object/widget. The only time I haven't had the Copy paste Duplication not working bug happen. Is in the content browser. That's only thing that works correctly. Everything else works randomly.

PLEASE FIX! It's driving me crazy!

I posted it in Linux because that's the platform I'm on. I don't know if it's with the other versions

Does this problem occur on other projects, or just this one?

I would say all as I do too sometimes notice this, luckily I do not do this that often. I think that move also produces the same issue.

I once had a really weird bug but upgrade it to 4.15 Preview had fixed it. Of course that could give you new bugs, so you should create copies often, as well as create a copy once you open it in 4.15, but it does so automatically.

Yeah same thing here, some tricks and it works a bit better:

  • recompiled the engine (hmmm, dont know why, I think you can skip this but I did it)

  • disable to drag windows with the alt key in the desktop environment, it's in most environment like unity and cinnamon

  • closed all other windows you have open (ie. a youtube full screen video on your secound screen is the worst thing you can do)

  • use nemo instead of nautilus

  • and try to paste in a text document. Mark some BP nodes or so, Ctrl+C, past it in a gedit document, see if something appears

But after all, it won't be like on windows
