Cannot copy/paste UMG widgets in Linux Editor

I’m using Ubuntu Linux 14.04 LTS.

In the UMG widget editor window (design view), if I try to copy/paste buttons from a vertical box to another, nothing happens.

Hey -

I was able to reproduce the copy/paste issue you mentioned and have submitted a bug report (UE-22443) for further investigation.


A workaround is to copy/paste anything in another window, like a text editor, and then it should start working again. That worked for me.

My suspicion is that the editor sees something in the clipboard that it can’t handle and hangs on processing anything else.

Thanks go to whammy for sharing this tip with me on the #UE4Linux IRC channel.
