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"

Unable to change collision settings on child componet

There's a rather bug in the collision settings. In that you can't change them on child components (be it static mesh or a collision volume) depending on what preset is set as default in the actor's blueprint.

For instance : if default preset is OverlapAllDynamic, collision preset can be changed on the actor instance in the editor

But if it's BlockAllDynamic - you can't change it anymore

From what I can gather, the bug has something to do with CollisionEnabled property. If the default is anything other than QuerryOnly, you are unable to change the collision preset on the actor's instance.

This is beyond frustrating considering I'm making a tile based game, and changing these settings is a MUST on per tile basis.

This was ok in 4.17. I've just switched to 4.19 so not sure if it got introduced there, or in 4.18

Product Version: UE 4.19

Were you able to resolve this? I'm working on a game where if I can't propagate changes in a parent to its children I would manually have to do it hundreds of times manually. :(

Nope. It's been reported as a bug Here Seems like you'll have to wait for 4.22 by the looks of it.

It's causing no small amount of headaches on my end as well, so I really hope it'll be resolved when 4.22 drops...
