Recently I have started learning blender. In a tutorial I am told to apply the smooth shader to eight specific faces (in a sphere). However when I am in edit mode the options "Smooth" and "flat" are not showing up. They are visible when I am in object mode.
I can select the option "Shade Smooth" after I press space bar. Why are these options not showing in my toolbar on the left? How can I get them to show up in the tool bar?
All help is greatly appreciated. Kind regards,
