KNOWN ISSUES


  • Sometimes if your selection is all uv islands, the only selected check won´t work on all islands, to make sure to apply transformation on all islands just select nothing and the transformations will be applied to all existing uv islands
  • When you have link size checked, the scale operation only takes into account X size
