On my Mac, pressing ⌘P to open the Open Asset pane does not focus the Search Assets text box automatically. However, invoking ⌘P and then typing collapses the Open Asset dialog and displays “No Results: …”, even if I type the names of assets that exist in the project.
Invoking ⌘P, clicking in the Search Assets text box, and then typing works as expected.
I was able to reproduce this on Macs running Yosemite and, have confirmed that this did not occur in previous versions of the engine and have entered the following bug report: UE-30378. When this issue has been resolved, we will update this post to let you know.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention,
This appears to be resolved in 4.14.0. Nice work!
We are phasing out updating bug reports when fixed with making bug reports visible to the public so I forgot to update this post when it was fixed. I’m glad you were able to discover it was fixed on your own -thanks for the feedback.
