"Goto defintion" option for BP nodes does nothing
So I was told that you can search for C++ function equivalents of Blueprint nodes if you right-click a blueprint node and choose "Goto Definition" (only works for C++ projects).
So I made a fresh new C++ project to test this out. Made a dummy blueprint and added a node to test but when I click "Goto Definition" nothing happens.
A little pop up window pops up in the bottom right corner saying "Reading C++ Symbols" and after that nothing happens.

Am I using this feature wrong or is this a bug? Help!

For that node, the target is "Gameplay Statics." If you then open
