Dotted faces

What is up with that face? In every mesh I have there is one of these faces. Any attempts to unwrap a mesh with one of these results in a hole in the uv. Can someone help me out with this?

The dots are just telling you that that is the active face. You cant really get rid of the dots. Under the themes tab in your preferences window you can change the color and opacity but not the dots themselves. Also the reason you might be showing a hole in your UV is because the active face under the UV window has and alpha value of 0, you can chance that under the theme also.

Ok, thank you for the response. I have two related questions. What is the point of the active face? and. I attempted to do a double sided UV and the active face was the only one that have the UV on both sides, any idea why that is?
