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"

4.16~4.18 Editor hangs when creating Data Asset OSX 10.13

For the last week I've been trying to start a project using the Unreal engine but the editor keeps hanging at random times as well as consistently repeatable times. I took 2 samples of the hung editor, the first sample is a random hang inputing values into a string variable, the second sample is one of the repeatable create Data Asset hangs. I hope this gets fixed soon as I would love to be able to use unreal for more than a few minutes at a time.

Unreal 4.18
right click in content browser -> create Data Asset -> hang, no crash report have to force quit

Unreal 4.16~4.18
right click animation -> retarget -> hang, no crash report have to force quit

Hi koushi,

I was unable to reproduce this when I tried initially, but your description sounded somewhat similar to an issue I reported a while ago (UE-48257). Is your Mac currently set to use a language other than English? We have had reports of hangs in certain situations when a Mac was set to use Japanese. When I set the Mac to use Japanese (Romaji), I received a hang when trying to create a Data Asset.

Yes I have my Mac set to use English as well as Japanese. Sounds like the same issue. Didn’t think the input language would cause hangs. I had it hang again multiple times trying to retarget animations. I wonder if that’s the cause.
