Collecting the files seems to have fixed the problem - sorry my turn of phrase probably did'nt make it clear in my edit - I could still set it up broken if you need to see it. It also happened the other day with a uv on a tshirt on a character I could read it in object display but it was like a reflection or flipped when rendered - I kept reversing it in PS , and gave up if I remember correctly , then seem to fix itself but it probably was when I collected the files.
Thanks for reply let me know if you need to try set up the anomaly again.
Ok here is is the jpg - or sometimes img file was in the same directory , unlike when you collect files they live in subfolder - the render is not updated but object display is , weird and confusing for a person like me that is trying hard to do thing inside the app.
I am good for the moment I probably will need help sometime again , so I will try keep my questions to a minimum thanks.
