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"

Clicking Class in Editor Starts Another Visual Studio

I recently upgraded to UE4.18 and VS2017.

Previously when I clicked a C++ base class name in the top-right of a blueprint, it switched windows to my already-running Visual Studio, and opened a tab with that class. It was great.

Now, when build and run my project as normal from Visual Studio, and click on the base class name, UE4 tries to open up another instance of VS2017.

What can I do to fix this?

Product Version: UE 4.18

Happens to me in 2015, so you can rule out the VS version. No idea why it happens. I just avoid doing that. I search the code in VS.
