I'm new to Blender and currently following a tutorial. I am using v2.71, the tutorial was filmed on 2.66.1.

On the tutorial in the properties menu there is a tab called "Mesh Display". But on my version this option is not there and I can't find it! So, where is it???


This panel is only available in edit mode. Press ↹ Tab to toggle edit mode, or select it from the drop down in the header of the 3D view:

Once you are in edit mode, you should see the mesh display panel in the Properties region (on the right in the above screenshot), which you can toggle visible with N.

    $\begingroup$ Note that the drop down is not in the header in the 3D view; it is the properties shelf (accessed with the N key) of the 3D window in Edit mode. $\endgroup$ – brasshat Oct 3 '14 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ @brasshat By "drop down" I meant the mode selection drop down, which is in the header. I edited to reduce confusion. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Oct 3 '14 at 17:42
