I'm very new to 3d modeling in general. I tried to make a simple 'magical girl' staff to start. When I unwrap it, the uvs are pretty close together and small, so I rearranged them all to my liking. I'm not sure how to like...get the new uv layout to 'stick'. If I deselect everything and then unwrap it again, it just goes back to the old, default, cluttered UV.
I feel like there's something I should be clicking or something so this won't happen! It's probably right in front of me and I don't even see it, haha.
Any help would be really great! thank you so much, guys. I'm hoping I'll get good at this one day :)
