[UV mapping] "Edit Seams" not working (cant add, or see any seams)
show user profile  ShurikenUK
This has happened to me before I think, once or twice, a while ago. I think I remember somebody telling me to try flipping the normals or something, and it might have worked, but this time it isn't. I've tried selecting the whole model in element subobject mode, then flipping, multiple times, but I still cant add any seams.

Now I'm stumped lol... Does anybody have any ideas?

Been a while...

If memory serves, you do not want to be in any sub-object mode when applying the UVW unwrap modifier. Just select the object itself (do not press 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, or if one of the sub-object levels is active, press it again to deactivate it).
