Short description of error
You can’t swap from one map to another in the UV editor when editing multiple objects.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Make a UV unwrap on multiple objects
  • Make a Lightmap pack on multiple objects
  • Blender does create a new UV map for each object 😃 yeepee!
  • Go to the UV editor when editing these multiple objects
  • Try to change the UV map to the lastly created (e.g. UVMap.001)
  • the UV editor will display the UV map UVMap.001 of the active object while all the other objects will still be displaying their UV map UVMap.
NOTE: here is a screenshot showing where to click to change the UV Map in the UV editor:
