I am following this tutorial to make a donut. However, when I am in the shading tab, nodes are not showing up in the bottom part. I have explored the area thing, but I can't find the starting nodes. Any help finding them? I tried searching online, but nothing I found is useful. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Do you have the object selected? $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Jun 30 at 1:54
  • $\begingroup$ mmhm yeah I do. $\endgroup$ – Autumn Jun 30 at 1:58
  • $\begingroup$ Hmmm. Hard to tell. The box at the top-middle that says "slot" suggests that no material has been assigned to whatever object you have selected. $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Jun 30 at 2:03
  • $\begingroup$ Pull from the ball icon that is to the left of "New", existing materials should appear there. $\endgroup$ – susu Jun 30 at 2:28
  • $\begingroup$ I know assigned a material, because I can color the object. When I press the ball I can select 'material.003' Even though I selected it, I still cant see anything. Maybe what is needed is a way to send myself to where the nodes are. $\endgroup$ – Autumn Jun 30 at 2:59

Choose your material, and in the shader workspase go to view-view all

  • $\begingroup$ Could you elaborate on how to do that? Perhaps indicate the menu items used or an image showing the features used $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Jun 30 at 9:56
  • $\begingroup$ There is a bar above where the nodes are supposed to show up. In the left part of it, there is a view button. In the drop down that it creates there is a view all button. Hope this helps. $\endgroup$ – Autumn Jul 1 at 2:43
