I cannot find the "Export UV Layout" option in Blender. The menu option "Export UV Layout" is simply and plainly not there. I have this problem with Blender 2.81, 2.82, 2.83, and 2.90, so it is most certainly something I am doing wrong.

I searched for the "Export UV Layout" add-on in the preferences and the add-on is not there. Can you please tell me what do you think I am doing wrong?

I am doing as follows:

  1. New project.
  2. Select the default cube.
  3. Change into edit mode.
  4. Go to the menu UV -> Unwrap
  5. Change into de UV Editing screen layout.
  6. Menu: Image -> New... -> Ok
  7. Select all vertices of the UV map
  8. UV Menu -> and fail!

Example of menu option not being there.

I tried using the "Operator Search... (F3)" option, but it doesn't find it.

Menu option not being found.

The "Export UV Layout" is not there. Can you please spot my mistake?

Thank you very much.

Search for 'UV' rather than 'Export' in the addons: enter image description here
