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"

Asset Manager creates duplicate asset types on engine reboot.

To replicate:

  1. Create new blank blueprint project on version 4.17.2.

  2. Open project settings.

  3. Click on asset manager on the left.

  4. Observe the 2 types to scan already there. This is fine, they are suppose to be there. But watch this!

  5. Add a new custom asset type. Check "In Editor Only."

  6. Close the editor. Reopen it.

  7. Go back to the project settings, then the asset manager.

  8. Observe that instead of 3 asset types to scan, you have 5. It creates two duplicates of the defaults and places them before the custom asset type created.

I've been able to replicate this 100% of the time.

Noticed the issue was marked as not reproducible @ThomasG, do you need any more information from us?

To follow up with this, I've also noticed that it does not seem to create duplicates if you uncheck the "In editor only" checkbox. So whatever checking that does is causing an issue somehow.
