Blueprint opening empty


I’m following this tutorial : A new, community-hosted Unreal Engine Wiki - Announcements and Releases - Unreal Engine Forums

And I’m at this step :

but when I click on Bp_FPSCharacter I only get an empty window, I trie window>reset layout but this did nothing.
Any ideas?


I suggest re-creating your BP. If this does not work, then you must’ve saved your current layout, which would explain why resetting layout would not do anything. I suggest you reset your prefs

recreating it worked, thanks :smiley:

However each times I close UE4 and get back to it I have to recreate the BP in order to see what’s inside, quite bothersome

From this post: A blank window shows after opening an actor blueprint - UE4 AnswerHub

If you open a blueprint and the view is mostly blank like above use the menu of that blueprint editor window and click on Window->Class Defaults

This will show you a message at the top that says “Note: This is a data only blueprint, so only the default values are shown. It does not have any script or variables. If you want to add some, Open the Full Blueprint Editor

Click the blue link that reads “Open the Full Blueprint Editor.” You will now be able to use that blueprint again like normal.

Why this is happening I do not know. But this will help you get around this bug.


I know this is really old, but for anyone stumbling upon this in Google:
The details panel may be hidden. Try clicking Window > Details. This fixed it for me!
