When I open a a Stock 3D model I downloaded, the entire interface changes. I see a "Default" layout option, but I don't see the stand "Layout" option at top of page. Is it possible that the model I have was created pre 2.8 & needs to be converted?

The model also does not have a Camera, & I can't see to find the "Add Camera" option that I see in basic tutorials.

I have attached screenshot of the UI as it appears with my stock model. Total Noob thanks you![enter image description here

You can bypass the user interface saved on the file and use your default one.

Open blender.

Then use File>Open to select the file you want, click on the gear on the right side and uncheck the LoadUI box.

  • $\begingroup$ Perfect- thanks. As a Mac Guy, the Blender UI seems very PC-like -including this forum, where I don't see a "like" button in appreciation for your help. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Also, if this isn't too "off topic": The 3D model I downloaded has a full set of image maps associated withe model, which was created in Blender. But the maps don't auto load when I open the model. Since it's a Blender file, is there a way to open the file with all image maps in place? Thanks again! $\endgroup$
