this is a basic question but I can't find any answer. It's driving me (a bit) mad.

When I press F12 the UV/Image-editor becomes my render-editor but how can I change it back to an UV-editor?


  • $\begingroup$ If you want to stop render result from appearing in UV editor where you edit UVs change Display setting in render settings, see blender.stackexchange.com/a/3729/1245 $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Jun 4 '18 at 11:38

It is your UV editor, it's just showing your rendered image.

See the image popup at the bottom of the pane, that says "Render Result"? Just click that, and select another image.

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, that's the thing which is bothering me. It's kinda empty :( abload.de/img/unbenannt357od9.jpg abload.de/img/unbenannt47sqa9.jpg $\endgroup$ – Matthieu O. Jun 4 '18 at 1:23
  • $\begingroup$ Press the "X" to switch back from the rendered image. $\endgroup$ – B.Y.O.B. Jun 4 '18 at 7:46
  • $\begingroup$ @B.Y.O.B.: That works, although sometimes I want to switch to a different image instead of an empty editor. $\endgroup$ – SilverWolf - Reinstate Monica Jun 4 '18 at 11:18

    $\begingroup$ @MatthieuO.: It looks like your pane header bar is gone. Is it there, but not in your screenshot? $\endgroup$ – SilverWolf - Reinstate Monica Jun 4 '18 at 11:19
  • $\begingroup$ I linked two images but the bar is only missing in the first screenshot but luckily I don't have any problem with the UV View itself. I am linking again the image that is bothering me: the rendered image. The Render Result is empty (and believe me: I created marked Seams and unwrapped the UVs) abload.de/img/unbenannt4473qs2.jpg Btw. Pressing X didn't work out. $\endgroup$ – Matthieu O.
