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"

Can't Select Skeletal Mesh in Character Blueprint

For a while, I've been using a static mesh as a placeholder for one of my characters. Now, I want to get rid of that mesh and replace it with an actual skeletal mesh. However, when I try to select the inherited skeletal mesh component, nothing happens. I can see the viewport tab glow as it does when I select any other component, but no settings or transform widget for the mesh appears. The same goes for the inherited arrow component.

This has happened to me before, and the only fix I've found is to reparent the blueprint to actor and then reparent it back to character, but whenever I try to reparent this blueprint, Unreal crashes, and even if it didn't crash, to much of my script would likely break for me to repair it in a reasonable amount of time.

Is there any simple fix for this, or is my only option to remake my entire blueprint from scratch?
