Basically, I end up either automatic mapping the lot and laying everything out almost from scratch, or select faces and assign certain maps to groups of faces. I am laying out uvs for characters, I can lay them out but I know it could be done an awful lot quicker than the time i spend on it. The only tool i understand is the 'move and sew' tool which can be very crude at times, I would like to select maybe a few closed edges and attach them elsewhere as at times i end up with a 'seam' which I cannot alter. Just a run through or basic guide of some of the most common uv tools would be helpful
