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"

Unable to select a BSP face

Hey guys,

I drop a BSP box into my level, go to Geometry Editing, select a face and try to move the face to resize the box. It does not work. The face is indeed highlighted but the gizmo stays in the center of the cube. I can not extrude the face either, which indicates that while I think the face is selected, it indeed is not really.

I can select vertices and edges fine, only get the problem with faces.

This must come from an Editor preference, but I can not tell which. Replacing the Config folder in my project's folder does not fix the problem.

I should get this:

alt text

and I get this:

Yeah, I have the same problem.

Thank you, that was the problem. Translucent selection is bound to the T key by default and it's very easy to toggle it inadvertently.

Just downloaded the Unreal Engine 4.22.2 Hotfix, I pressed T like you said and now it's working, you're right it is very easy toggle it, thank you.

Translucent selection being bound to the T key by default cost me something like 20 minutes trying to figure out why I couldn't select and move BSP faces anymore. If you happen to accidentally randomly press T, you just screw yourself up in a way that's impossible to notice or realize until you happen upon this very AnswerHub post. Damn, that was frustrating!

Thanks for the tip! To aid in anyone else who runs into this problem, I'll specifically say that it solved the issue of BSP geometry box face editing not working. Hopefully that's enough "SEO."

Wow ! I had the same problem :x they need to change this toggle button before it became a real problem

Thanks for the help! This was driving me insane for quite some time. They really need to change it
