So this is very disturbing, i am working with UE more than a year now, and i never faced such a bug before.
A week ago my unreal went mad, and stopped to open the static mesh editor… It gets stuck like in the linked image (see it below)…
I am using Nvidia GTX Titan X
Intel i7 5960X cpu
32 GB ram
I tried to uninstall and reinstall unreal… It worked for 5 mins then it stopped to work again.
Any ideas why this can be?
btw. If i build the project from the github branch it works fine, but unfurtonately i cannot go with the github branch forever, becouse of many reasons(some cutom plugins etc… )
Try going into the ‘Window’ menu in the editor and selecting the ‘Reset Layout’ to see if that fixes the issue.
This seems like a very specific issue to your project or engine version. Can you reproduce this issue in a blank project created from the launcher?
Thx for the fast answer. So first i crated a blank project, and it didnt work, but then i was using the reset layout as you suggested. It works now!
Thank you! What could have caused this issue out of the sudden?
I hope it wont come back, if it does im keeping you updated about it.
This was a good ending for my workday! thx
Sometimes simply re-arranging windows and accidentally closing them can happen. This is why we have the reset layout option just in case you cannot open or locate your windows. I am glad you were able to get your project back up and running as expected
This solved my problem Thank you!!!
Thanksssss was happening also with me, and reset just magically fixed it!!
cheers same thing happened to me and could not open or edit a material resetting the layout in UE5 did the trick
