What happened to the UV face select form version 2.45.
That was the only way i new how to UV TEXTURE

Everything still the same all you have to do is have one window open to the UV Image editor, and another in 3D View, and then you just unwrap (U) straight from Edit mode.

ok thanks i got it now

No, its not… For example, the commands that we used to have that allowed one to copy uv face mapping and texture flags are now GONE.

Ctrl-C and Ctrl-F keys will pop-up some useful menus

Doesnt change the fact that those commands should never have been moved out of the UI panel in the first place Oto.
