Unwrap UVW - How does one delete a converted edge segment seam?

Unwrap UVW - How does one delete a converted edge segment seam?

I used the Point to Point Selection tool to select ALL segments along an edge and hit Convert Edge Selection to Seam (red to Blue). I forgot to leave one segment unselected to be used as an anchor.

How can I edit the seam to delete one blue edge?

To see what I mean zoom to 4:20...

Select edge subobject in the unwrap modifier and then press the button that says convert edge selection to seam.

From what I can remember, though I use 2009 you click the 'edit seam' button in edge mode then click the edge you no longer want as a seam and it turns back to green again.

[edit] ah right just watched the vid and the modifier has changed since 5 years ago, strange that :p

well in 2009 the edit seams button lets you change individual edges, click to add, ctrl+click to remove. like so: (I'd imagine the button is still there just called something similar or given an image.

It's alt+click.

And when you've made errors like this, I find the "fuck it I'll just collapse and restart" always the best option for unwrapping.

Alt + click worked although when I peeled the model it didn't turn out right so I loaded the tut file to see it through. Very complicated this UVW Unwrap

It's properly the reason I haven't bothered to use it and the 20 year frustration in not getting the result I wanted. Material Editor was always my friend, especially Substances

I don't use peel at all. I use planar, pelt, spline, and unfold.

Is there anyway to isolate seams? I have two seams that share the same edge. After getting half way done my attention was drawn to a more domestic chore (my wife's nagging reached the boiling point) and I had to abandon the seam. Where I left off I don't remember because they overlap at the seam

I'm just beginning to understand UVW Unwrap so I'm not qualified to criticize this author but he doesn't seem to have it together.

Do you sense his lack of understanding?
