I have a blend file, But when I am trying to import the only options I have are collada and alembic. FBX, OBJ etc are all missing.

I have enabled FBX add on in preferences. I have seen the options MANY times before, why is it missing all of a sudden?

  • $\begingroup$ Blender 2.8. There are no errors, just when I click file>Import> all I see is collada and alembic. If I open a new blender window, I have all the import options. This file had those options and now they have disappeared $\endgroup$ – Kamran Ali Aug 10 at 17:46
  • $\begingroup$ I would check the User Preferences for that blend file; Addons > Import/Export $\endgroup$ – Corbomite Aug 10 at 22:45

I have the same problem . But i accidentally found a solution so I thought I should share it. The import export options like . Fbx etc are missing In layout workspace, if you switch to modeling you will find all the other import export options. Same in case of exporting uv layout, it's missing if you open a window and use uv editor but it's present in uv editing workspace.
