A newbie here.

I create an object > Add an UV map > Apply some texture. I then duplicate the object, The 2 objects are rendered properly, they show the material correctly.

I then want to change the alignment of the material in one of the objects so I select the object > go to Edit mode > open the UV editor. Here I am expecting to see the UV mapping I previously added and also the texture file so I can move the map to align the texture, instead it shows no material and no uv map.

Here is a screenshot

Thanks for any advise

  • $\begingroup$ Ok, it was dumb. I did select the object and then switched to Edit mode but the object was getting de-selected so I had to re-select it while in Edit mode. $\endgroup$

According to your screenshot your 3D viewport is in Object Mode, for what you're describing you want it to be in Edit Mode:
