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 can I select an entire brush?

I was working in unreal 4, creating a bunch of brushes and the editor crashed. When I reopened it my side, front, and top viewports no longer displayed any of my brushes except the pre-existing starter content floor. In perspective mode if I select place mode and try to select my brushes, it only selects their faces and not the whole brush. Please help.

Product Version: Not Selected

Hey LightUrple-

Which version of the engine are you using? What kind of brushes were you working with and how many were you creating when you crash?

avatar image LightUrple Sep 11 '14 at 08:32 PM

Hey Doug,

I'm using 4.2.1 and I was working with box and sphere brushes. I didn't have many when I crashed. Only about 4 box brushes and 2 sphere brushes.

I'm currently unable to reproduce your crash. Does the issue occur in a new project when working with brushes?

Hey LightUrple-

When you select your brush and it only selects the face, is the selection outline blue or orange?

avatar image LightUrple Sep 22 '14 at 06:47 PM

Hey Doug, Yes the crash can happen on a new project and the face selection is orange.

Hey LightUrple-

What steps do you take when creating a new project that causes the crash? Also, are you only able to select a single face before the crash or does it only happen after the crash has occurred? Lastly which project template are you working with (first person, third person, etc.)?

  1. Open the dashboard

  2. Launch

  3. New Project

  4. Blueprint ThirdPerson

I can select multiple faces for a little while before the crash occurs.

Does the crash happen after simply placing the BSP into the level or do you change any of their settings first? Are you adding additive or subtractive brushes?

avatar image LightUrple Sep 22 '14 at 07:55 PM

I was using both additive and subtractive brushes and yes I would most likely tweak their settings after placing them. Adding more sides to a cylinder for example, or manually moving the verts on a cube brush to adjust the size.

Hey LightUrple-

So to make sure I understand what steps you're taking to induce the crash, you open a new project from the Launcher and then use the Modes window to pull in different bsp? Is there anything that I'm missing that happens before the crash?

Also, if you could post your log files it will help us determine what is causing the crash. The logs we need are in the Saved folder inside your project folder. If there are multiple files in the Logs folder, the set created immediately following the crash would be the most useful.
