I am new to Blender and was watching some video tutorials. However, the one in the video (v2.78) has the tabs on the left panel,


and mine (v2.69) doesn't.

my screenshot

How do I enable them and what is their correct name? Or were they added in some later version?

  • $\begingroup$ I think it came in a later version, yeah. Why don't you upgrade it? There's downside, only positives. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Leo, any proof of that? Ubuntu 14.04 repositories contain only v2.69. Before I upgrade I would like to make sure it is really necessary. $\endgroup$ Jun 1 '18 at 5:00
  • $\begingroup$ As well as upgrading blender, also recommend upgrading to ubuntu 18 (the repos are up to date (for now)) Very impressed after recent upgrade from 14.10. $\endgroup$

Upgrade your Blender. This feature was introduced in 2.70. By now 2.79 is the current version. You can just download a tarball, extract it, and run it.
