Moving a parent of a child into a folder causes crash

when i move parent from scene actor display to a folder it causes editor to crash

Hi ,

I wasn’t able to reproduce a crash by moving a parent Blueprint instance to a folder, neither in World Outliner nor in Content Browser. I have a few questions to help us narrow down problem:

  1. Can you reproduce crash in same project?
  2. Can you reproduce crash in a new project?
  3. Are you moving parent to a folder in World Outliner or Content Browser?
  4. Does this happen with any Actor Blueprint Parent/Child combination, or only with specific classes?

Please also find log from your project after this crash occurs. log can be found in your project’s Saved\Logs folder. Thanks!

i can reproduce in same project on different computers

ill try new project

no i am moving to folder under world outliner

it happens with a point light under a actor being moved to a folder under world outliner

Hi ,

Have you been able to try this in a clean project yet? Does same crash occur when you do? Additionally, Do you mean that you are moving an actor in world outliner to a new folder within world outliner or are you moving objects that are referenced in world outliner within content browser?

Hi ,

We have not heard from you in several days. I am marking this thread as answered for tracking purposes. If you are still experiencing this error, please comment back with requested information.


I experienced a similar problem:

When a point light is attached to a static mesh as a child, and I try to drag static mesh (in World Outliner) into a folder (also in World Outliner), editor crashes.

This also happened in a blank project.

Version: 4.8.3

Hi everyone,

Thank you for additional information, grubby. I was able to reproduce this on my end in 4.8.3. However, It appears this has already been fixed as of 4.9 P2.
