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"

This is in "Play in standalone game" mode but it also happens in "Play in selected viewport" mode too.

Hi Solus Peregrine ,

This is not a bug. You can disable the ContextMenu by selecting your EditableBox in the UMG designer and unchecking the AllowContextMenu variable.

Cheers,

Hi project.gheist, I forgot to mention that this is on version 4.10, I'm not sure but I found a change log that says that option was added in 4.11. Is there no way around this for 4.10?

This feature indeed got added in 4.11. A workaround/dirty hack would be to do the following at the top of the function SEditableText::SummonContextMenu in SEditableText.cpp to disable the functionality in cooked builds;

 #if !WITH_EDITOR
 return;
 #endif
