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"

Can't right click or open any drop down menus

Hi Ive been working on a project for university and it was all going fine up till this week. I can now no longer right click most things or open most drop down menus.

I have looked and seen that this problem has happened to people, the spacebar trick works on some drop down menus but not all of them which means it is still a big problem for me right now. I have recently had a Windows 10 update but I am not a Windows insider so I don't think I can change to different version?

I have a YouTube video here to show what I mean, with the buttons I am pressing - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCfZLNoN9Xg&t=1s

You don't need to watch the whole video, the first 10 seconds should show I mean.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, I have sent this to my lecturer so he may come up with a solution or hopefully an extension if I cant fix this anytime soon.

I'd like to add that 4.15 works fine with the latest windows update. At least with my machine.

Granted that's not an ideal solution for a lot of projects, but information that could help regardless.

It is very disapointing that a fully updated Windows 10 Pro cannot use the version 12.5 due to this bug. I even tried out this solution: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/483838/editor-right-clickdrop-down-menu-invisible.html#answer-484658 with the "WindowExStyle |= WS_EX_COMPOSITED;" in "Engine\Source\Runtime\Core\Private\Windows\WindowsWindow.cpp"

It works for a short while and then the issues are back.

Gonna move to version 15 now and see if it works. I am currently using a resource that recommended version 12.5 but that is not gonna be a viable choice after all. Hopefully the C++ in version 12.5 and version 15 is NOT too different as that will mean a pile of extra work.

Nevermind I have managed to fix this now.

I did a Windows 10 recovery to go back to a previous version.

Hi, Does anyone know how to solve this issue without resorting to a rollback/recovery?

I seem to be having a similar issue on Windows 10 build 1563.675 with engine versions 11, 13 and 17

edit: nvm found solution here https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/483838/editor-right-clickdrop-down-menu-invisible.html#answer-484658
