Fortnite pre-edits: How to disable

Pre-edits in Fortnite is, simply put, the ability to edit and set a number of different builds for structures. 

However, many players have opted not to use it, as it can lead to mistakes while building or utter confusion, especially in heated situations.

With the Fortnite v15.20 update, Epic Games finally decided to add an option to disable pre-edits, to the joy of Fortnite players everywhere.

  • Launch Fortnite
  • Head on over to the settings tab
  • Scroll down to the "Building" section
  • The second option will read "Disable Pre-Edit Option"
  • Turn this setting "ON" to disable the feature
