I'm trying to mod the object in a downloaded blender file.
I select my object, create a Material and apply a texture. I switch the view to "Texture" but nothing appears.
So I try creating a UV Map. Same thing. Texture applied to Map yet still no texture appears on screen.
It was suggested to me that there may be a Blender setting I need to change.
I created a brief video showing the problem which you can view here: www42.zippyshare.com/v/fnoTxce9/file.html
