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"

Viewport and component tab missing from blueprint.

Before I start writing this, I should probably mention that I have looked at other issues with similar descriptions, but none of the answers worked.

Now, I was following the First Person Shooter Tutorial in the UE Docs and had reached 2.7. By this point, I had already interacted with the viewport tab and changed skeletal and location for the character blueprint. This is when I decided to close for the day and do something else. Then, this morning, I opened up my project to continue and noticed that the blueprint component and viewport tabs were missing. They could not be opened from the Window button either.

Bottom line: They were there before and I used them. Now they're not and I can't get them back. What in the world do I do?

(I have tried the Reset Layout button.)

(This also applies to the other blueprint made in the tutorial.)

Yes, I know where they're supposed to be, but they're not there. There's Toolbar, Class Defaults, Find Results and My Blueprint. And at the top it says Defaults Editor.

hi, i resolved the issue by clicking edit in the context menu of a blueprint (in the content browser) and then it suggested to me to open blueprint if a full editor, click there and it will open blueprint editor with standard layout (all the tabs: Viewport, Construction script, Event graph, details, components, my blueprint)

Pressing Edit didn't prompt me to use full editor. So bump for help!

I have the same issue as well, even by going to window I can't even find the Viewport Screenshot of Window menu

Edit: not even a minute after that I found a note on top of the main opened tab (which was the details tab I assume) prompting me to open the full editor
