# Blender 2.79b Error when trying to Smart UV Project

I try using Smart UV Project in Blender after selecting the whole mesh and going into edit mode, but I get the following error message which is totally inexplicable to me.

What should I do? I'm simply trying to texture a text logo.

• Yes. I do so by hitting the a hotkey. Not sure how else to specifically select the mesh while in edit mode, since the selection menu is different. – CelineDion Dec 26 '18 at 23:03
