I am new to blender and working through a tutorial, but I have a problem. I can not for the life of me figure out how to add a particle texture. I must be missing something in the UI. When I navigate to the texture tab I can not find the button. What am I doing wrong?


in case anyone is wondering the tutorial is here: http://blenderdiplom.com/en/tutorials/all-tutorials/394-tutorial-dissolve-your-logo-in-blender-262.html


Go into the particle tab of the properties window and add a new particle system to your object. In the particle settings look for the Textures panel and add a new texture.

If you return to the textures panel it should then turn into particle texture editing, along with a pull-down menu to choose texture context from.
