Is there a way you can split UVs?

Hey fellas,

I know you can select two vertices in the UV editor and stitch them together using the V key.
But is there a way you can do the opposite? I’d like to split the vertices of one UV island to create a second UV island.

In Edit mode, Face Select, select only the faces you want on the island. Move the selected faces in the UV window to their new location and pin them. Now when you select all faces the island should stay where you put it.

Thank you Mr Dichotomy Matt

Glad that helped. I just realized that in 2.46, if you click the “link to edit” button in the UV window, you can do the face select and move in just the UV window.
