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"

Hey ragnarula-

I have updated the report to remove the reference that this does not occur on Win10.

Hi Doug,

One of our team found a work around/fix that can be added to an Engine Source build.


Line 224 -

 if (Filename == InSolutionPath)


 FString AbsoluteSolutionPath = FPaths::ConvertRelativePathToFull(InSolutionPath);
 if (Filename == InSolutionPath || Filename == AbsoluteSolutionPath)

Not sure if it is useful to have that on the bug as well.
