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"

How to fix a custom software cursor placement for high dpi monitor in PIE?

When I'm trying to use a custom software cursor (with an UMG widget), it's placed wrong in PIE mode (either inside the editor or in a new window). Please look for the screenshot (it's a "Run in a new window" option, not a fullscreen). alt text

With standalone game everything is ok.

If switch off the editor support for High DPI monitors – everything works good.

I have found several similar questions but no real solution (except an advice to set the compatibility mode for the UE4 executable).

My setup:

  • win10 64bit

  • 4k monitor

  • UE4.20.3 (though the bug is reproduced at least since 4.19.2, and I think it was always there since the high dpi option introduced).

UPDATE: just checked the new 4.21.0 preview 1 – and the bug is fixed in it!

Steps to reproduce:

  • create a new project

  • Create an UMG widget (e.g. with a single Image element)

  • open Project Settings

  • Add a custom Software Widget, choose the widget

  • run it in PIE

  • try to move the cursor to the bottom right corner

Product Version: UE 4.20

The issue is fixed in 4.21.0-Preview1.

Here is the very specific cherry-pick of the fix code, it can be applied for the 4.20.* UE4 source (didn't checked 4.19 or older versions).
