I am practicing with UV Unwrap, using a checker texture on a mesh. I do the smart unwrap and the UV's change in the UV editor, but the changes do not update in the viewport. I can grab a cluster of UV's and move it around but the change does appear on the object. I am sure this is a setting but I don't know what to change. Can you all help? Thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ I deleted the UV Map and unwrapped again, and nothing changed in the viewport. How is that even possible? $\endgroup$
