Yesterday I updated from 4.12 on my MacBook Air to the current version, UE4.14.1. Similar problems has happened on 4.10 apparently, and it doesn’t seem like other people has reported it for UE4.14. I have never experienced these problems in previous versions on Mac.
The following problems has been experienced creating a basic C++ project:
1. I cannot rename folders in the vertical menu in the content browser
Similar to another problem in 4.10 according to the answer hub. The same workaround worked for me.
2. Starter Content won’t include itself if ticked
Similar to this workaround for UE 4.10, where one adds the starter content manually after project creation. It starts with a completely empty, untitled map. If you ask for a new map, the three “starter templates” can be selected, even if the starter content has not been manually added yet. Without the starter content it does however only result in creating another new “untitled”, empty map again.
Update: Requested information 30/12/2016
I am running on a MacBook Air 13" (Early 2014). I can’t figure out how to get detailed specs, though.
CPU: Intel i5 1.4GHz
RAM: 2x2GB DDR3
GPU: Intel HD 5000
256 SSD, still around 20% of free space.
OS: Sierra (10.12.2)
Probably not the most suitable system for anything else than minesweeper, but it works for simple things, and I have never had issues with previous versions of UE.
The excluded options during the UE 4.14 installation were "Editor Symbols … ", “Art tools”, and “TVOS” - Starter Content has been installed.
Since I cannot replicate the error today, I can only tell you what I remember doing twice before reporting the problem:
New Project C++ Project (Basic Code) with starter content
It opened without errors, but as mentioned Starter Content was not included (There was no map for it in the content menu either) until I manually included it. A completely empty map was opened prior to adding the Starter Content to the project, but even before, when I asked to create a new map, it prompted me to select between the three choices you also posted a picture of. When I asked for a default map (The first choice) it gave me a map without anything, no platform, no lights or anything.
Renaming folders wasn’t possible in the “vertical menu”, and f2 didn’t work either, I tested that. Renaming in the horizontal menu did work, however.
