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"

Missing assets

What the Heck. So today I opened my editor and the first thing I noticed is that my asset is missing... like it got deleted. I can't find it at all so is there some way that I can get it back or what?

Check within your folder (not through Unreal, just through File Explorer). Is the file there?

Do you have source control (Git / Perforce?). If so then check the history in there. If you don't use Source Control, I suggest looking into it to avoid problems.

Check your recycle bin. Is it there?

If the answer to these is no, then you've probably lost the file, and it's likely because you accidentally deleted it or didn't save it. If you can still find the file and it's not loading, then it may have become corrupted. If you can post a bit more detail about the asset then someone may be able to help. If this is the problem then again, I recommend looking at source control as this will go a long way to help when these problems occur.
