[Bug] 4.4 Preview locks up in OSX, when clicking on C++ link in outline

Hi Guys,

Getting a freeze in 4.4 Preview in OSX(10.9.4 Mavericks). This was done on a newly created project by clicking the AtmosphericFog.h link in the outliner here:


After clicking on the link, the correct header was was displayed, but the editor completely freezes up and become unresponsive.

EDIT: This is due to the editor waiting for xcode to launch. If, for whatever reason, xcode doesn’t launch, the editor will freeze, until the user launch xcode manually. Also I was asked at one point to give “System Event” accessibility privileges:



Adding the ‘Unreal Engine’ application isn’t what you need to do here.
You need to add the UE4Editor.app to the list since that is what is invoking Applescript to open the right file and line in Xcode. The easiest way to do this is to open the 4.4 Editor and then right click on its icon in the dock and select Options > Show in Finder. That should take you to the UE4Editor.app which you should drag into the Accessibility list in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility.

Sadly because of the way Apple have decided to lock Applescript down we can’t automatically do this for you. I’m going to look into a way to make this clearer though since it misbehaves badly without proper registration - apologies for the inconvenience.

No problem. Thanks for the clarification. Just to be clear, I didn’t add Unreal Engine to accessibility that was already there when I was alerted to grant it rights in the 4.0 days.
