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"

Undo history resets after save

I don't know why, but my undo history gets erased every time when I save the map. AFAIK, such programs (Visual Studio, Maya, Powerpoint idk) allow to undo things after save, some programs even allow to save undo history to use after launching again (don't know why, but maybe for someone it's useful), but Unreal Engine doesn't keep undo history. It's discouraging when you see the consequences that you didn't expect, that are caused by action that you can't uncover, because UE says Can't undo after: Map Saved. UE isn't that protected from FC to leave things unsaved for a long time + there is wonderful feature of autosave. So please, fix this resetting thing

Product Version: UE 4.17

Is this happening in 4.20? I never noticed it before. Maybe I never tried to undo something right after a save.

Not sure haven't tried but you could make a new project makes something save and try to undo the steps. Report back if you don't mind, please.

Same issue on 4.21.2. Losing Undo History because of a Save is very very unfriendly.

Still an issue in 4.22.2

This is very annoying and it should allow you to keep it on. I have saved a few times by mistake after breaking some landscape shapes and I had to redo them.

I can verify that this is still an issue as of 4.20, 13/Nov/2018 VERY annoying when you want to Playtest something and save out of habit, then want to undo to get back past it but are unable to.

Any updates on this? I don't remember this being an issue in previous versions, but 4.20 and 4.21 seem to cause issues for me. Is there an editor or project setting somewhere that I can't find?
