# What to do when I get the message "subsurf modifier need to be first to work with unwrap"?

I am trying to UV unwrap an object. However, I keep getting the following messsage when I try to unwrap:

subsurf modifier need to be first to work with unwrap

I have tried adding subsurf modifier, but I keep getting this message. What can I do in this situation?

• I didn't get those messages especially on the object with Subsurf, however that message means option of unwrapping checked which assumes using Subsurf. Oct 11 '16 at 14:10
• Try looking in the Last Operator panel on the Toolshelf (or F6) if Use Subsurf Modifier is checked. It could be enabled accidentally, although it should go away as long as Subsurf is present. Oct 11 '16 at 14:55
