UV Image Editor

How do I display a preview of the 3D objects in the UV Image Editor while I’m using it?

Set the UV/Image editor to display the Render Result. Whenever you want a refresh, press F12.

I thought there was a way where you could just press a button and it take the current view and you can see all of the faces, verts, and edges.

Do you mean this

It looks right to me. Thanks.

Just go to textured view in the 3D window. Make sure the normals are facing the right way though.
