The manual for V. 2.80 says: "To open the User Preferences editor go To File ‣ User Preferences. "

User Preference does not exist under File. I want to make paths to folders with filepaths Where do I find it?

User preferences for 2.8 are now under the Edit > Preferences menu, to the right of File menu.

enter image description here

Saving and loading of settings has been moved into the Preferences window and is now done from a dedicated popup dialog, at the bottom left of the panel.

enter image description here

Autosave is on by default, meaning that any changes should be saved automatically on (gracious) exit. If Auto Save is disabled, a save button is made visible and settings are only saved at user discretion (good for testing with keymaps and other hard to reverse or critical settings).

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for your reply. Blender/I cannot find the window from the manual showing the path of the named Dir. Ex. File Pats: Fonts Texture Render output Etc. - There is nothing called User Preference This is the first time I use this program so I am completely on the bare bottom. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The official manual is for the current official release 2.79 version, you are probably using 2.8 nightly builds which is in Beta and not out yet $\endgroup$ May 20 '19 at 8:55
  • $\begingroup$ Should I go back to the 2.79 version? Or is there a way to make paths to dir with "Temp" files, Rander cache and Render output etc. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ 2.8 is not ready for production yet, If you are using Blender for work you should go for 2.79, otherwise most old settings should still be available there $\endgroup$ May 20 '19 at 22:30
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you very much for your help. $\endgroup$
