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"

Strange typing problem with Visual Studio and Visual Assist

So I just bought Visual Assist, and I'm having a strange bug. While Visual Assist is activated, I cannot type a left Parenthesis "(" That character does not get typed at all. Also, I got the message "Visual Assist cannot edit the active document." the first time I tried to type a left parenthesis. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? What setting could possibly cause this?

Let me know what other info you need me to provide.

Thanks in advance :)

Hey there, i don't use Visual Assist, but maybe it could be a keybind that VA uses as a shortcut for some reason. Is that the only character that doesnt work?

You appear to be suffering from a known bug in the way Unreal Editor opens files in Visual Studio when those files are hosted on a network share.

You should have received a message from Visual Assist explaining that it cannot edit the file and requesting that you reopen it from within Visual Studio, i.e. File | Open. That is what you should do.
