Lots of issues with UMG and console/keyboard control
I've been trying for a while now to make UMG work with console controller/keyboard/mouse and as great as UMG is I think the navigation support is in need of some major work. For about a year now we made do with our game working with just mouse interaction and decided we'd get console controllers working later on (using Rama's mouse cursor control pad plugin to hold us over). I didn't think it would be too big a problem since the engine exports to all major consoles it would have some systems in place.
There are some systems in place but they are all filled with so many issues I'm not sure where to even begin at this point so i'll just bullet point some of the major problems.
There are more smaller issues but I think those are the biggest ones that I can actively remember (this has been an ongoing fight for about a year of development now). I don't even know if this should be considered a bug report because it seems like an incomplete aspect of the engine and I wasn't sure where else to put this information.
I appreciate your hard work and the engine you've made so I hope this doesn't come off as just ranting, I genuinely want the engine to get to the best possible point it can like you. If you need any more information please let me know.
Thanks for reading!

I am in the exact same boat. I really cannot believe that controller support is not better supported in the UMG menu system.
