    Python scripting plugin doesn't work

    I've been trying to enable the plugin as described in, but without success.

    I enabled Python Editor Script Plugin and Editor Scripting Utilities in the plugins menu and restarted the editor, but it seems to have no effect. I don't get any new options in the File menu, the dropdown in the output log only shows the cmd option, and the py command does nothing.

    The output log has the line "LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin PythonScriptPlugin", so apparently the plugin is being loaded. There are no error messages as far as I can tell.

    I'm using UE 4.21 on macOS Sierra.

    Can anybody help?

    I also have the same issue. I am also using unreal engine 4.21 in LInux Ubuntu. I too have enabled all the plugins required for python and restrated my python. But I cannot see any python option in my output log other than cmd. Can anybody please provide a solution


      Windows is currently the only supported platform for builds installed from the launcher, however a source build of a Mac editor (when you have Python installed in a location we can find) will work. We're currently aiming to have Python working out-of-the-box on Mac for 4.22.


        Have same issue on Windows box. Intel NUC NUC8I7HVK Mini PC/HTPC, Intel Quad-Core i7-8809G Upto 4.2GHz, 8GB DDR4, 256GB M.2 SSD, AMD Radeon RX Vega M GH, 4k Support, Dual Monitor Capable, Wifi, Bluetooth, Windows 10 Pro 64Bit

        Have enabled the plugins Python and Scripting required for python and restarted.
        But cannot see any python option in my output log other than cmd.
        It does work fine on another Windows box [with NVidia] 4.22 unreal, but this windows configuration does not work.
        In File menu, the python tab does not show up either.
        In the log the only mention is

        "LogPluginManager: Mounting plugin PythonScriptPlugin"

        Note*: Build from Source
