One of the competitive communities biggest issues may be undergoing a fix.

Pre-edits are when you go to place a wall and it is already edited.

While this sounds like a good feature, for many players, it ends up causing more issues than just the normal way of building a wall and editing it.

The simple fix to this problem is to just include an option that allows players to turn on or off the ability to pre-edit.

While there are many of these options that players are clamoring for, this one actually received a response from Epic which means it is at least on the developer’s radar.

MrPopoTFS could have easily ignored this off-topic request but he took the time to respond to the person who asked.

Thank you Epic for the communication! Maybe we will be seeing a pre-edit setting some time in the future. from r/FortniteCompetitive

It definitely isn’t the most definitive response, but at this point, any communication is good communication.

For what it is worth, this issue has not been added to the Fortnite Trello board that tracks issues in progress.

That board is mostly used for bugs and not implementing new features, but features have appeared on that board in the past. If it was something they have worked on, it would likely appear on a card on that board.

I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for this feature to be added, but hopefully we can have this option in a future version of Fortnite.

Would you turn pre-edits off if you were able to? They don’t bother me a ton but I also don’t use pre-edits most of the time anyway.
