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"

Replacing RootComponent in Actor resets it's position on level to Zero

For examaple we have ASomeActor defined in C++, and it is placed on map.

Than at some point during refactoring we decide to change it's root component form USphereComponent to UBoxComponent, during a refactoring phase.

Recompile project and Boom. All actor positions a reset to zero.

Expected behavior: if we change RootComponent from one USceneComponent to other USceneComponent Actors does not loose their positions on map.

Best wish: Add some mechanism to retain as much component properties as possible by writing some conversion functions.

Product Version: UE 4.22
