Short description of error
When editing UV's, If you are mirroring UV's, If any shared vertex on the edge of the islands are exactly on top of one another. Using L or ctrl+L on any vertex of the island wll select both islands

**Exact steps for others to reproduce the error**

  • Add a UV Sphere.
  • Mark a seam down the middle to get 2 seperate islands
  • Unwrap UV
  • Select one of the two islands and scale it -1 on the x axis
  • Drag any edge vertex onto it's shared vertex on the other island. Select both shared edge vertex's and scale 0 to ensure precise stacking.
  • --> Now Trying to select either island using L or by selecting a vertex and using CTRL-L will select both islands.
  • Disabling sticky selection shared location doesn't change anything

[Please describe the exact steps needed to reproduce the issue]
[Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible)]

Event Timeline

A workaround can be to make selection in 3D View. In Face Select mode in 3D View, select linked is limited by UVseam.

Thank you, I just tried your workaround and can confirm that it works. Much appreciated.

This is just how it works currently, what is an island is based on vertex and edges being in the same location.

It could be improved once, but not considered a bug.
