[Crash] Permanent crash of UMG asset

I have been experiencing a permanent crash with an asset. Meaning It’s crashed and I can no longer open it.

What I did was to add input to the binding of an Image.

When clicking the designer tab it immediately crashed it.

Is there a way I can recover the asset without accessing it? I do not have a bcakup to this asset.

Hello ,

I was unable to reproduce this issue in the latest version (4.6) with the information that was given. I am given a error message and I am not allowed to compile. I have a few questions that will help narrow down the issue that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. What version of the engine are you using?
  2. Can you provide accurate steps to reproduce this issue?
  3. Can you provide a screen shot of the blueprint or a remade version that caused the crash?

Recovery suggestion:

The engine has backup files. You could try going back to a version of the project before the widget started crashing. The backup files are located in your Saved file. The default directory Can be found by going to Documents > Unreal projects > YourProjectName > Saved > Backup

This is on version 4.4 while UMG was still experimental . I believe it’s no more there now .
