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"

[Sequencer] You can't zoom out or pan around the timeline in Sequencer if you zoom in on a keyframe past a certain point, unless you double click or if you don't zoom in an extra step when the timeline turns dark gray.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a new project.

  2. Right click in the Content Browser - Animation - Level Sequence.

  3. Create either a master sequence, an animation sequence, or a "shot_[number]" (as per the official "Cinematics with Sequencer" Youtube tutorial).

  4. Click the green "+Track" button - "Actor to Sequence", and choose something from the scene.

  5. Add a keyframe anywhere on the timeline (for example, for the "Transform" track).

  6. Hold Ctrl and zoom in using the mouse scroll on that keyframe until you can't zoom in any more.

  7. Try to zoom out or pan around the timeline.


You can't zoom out or pan around the timeline any more. Only if you double click, which brings you back to 100% zoom level, or, if you zoom in close enough until the screen goes dark but you don't zoom in one extra mouse wheel increment.

Expected Result:

You should be able to zoom out freely. It happens to me during this root motion "workaround": https://youtu.be/9MWy3qIL2gs?list=PLZlv_N0_O1gaiA_sfpjATUprVW7B9FcK1&t=231 (using UE 4.18.2), but I noticed it happens anywhere else during that tutorial, and inside of any "breadcrumb" (Master, Shot_04 or Animation). It's weird having it lock up like that.

Product Version: UE 4.18
