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"

Visual Studio Intellisense Cannot Open Generated.h Files in 4.20

See UE-62042 for a bug report of the issue. This issue is currently halting my entire process, as it renders Intellisense basically useless. Would really a\ppreciate a fix, but the problem has been backlogged. Here's an example of the issue:

Already tried re-creating all generated files, including .vs and the entire solution, no luck. I also attempted to change the include directories as recommended by a community member, still failed to solve problem. I'd like a fairly prompt bug fix, but even a mere workaround would be appreciated.

I have the same issue, tried all that Arjemon did above too. Added manual include locations too for solution and modules as well. Also created a completed new test C++ project in a different directory and still got the errors not able to find .generated.h files.

really does make intellisense useless at the moment :(

I'm hoping this is addressed soon, it's making my coding process extremely slow, and I imagine doing the same for others.
