I found a few answers to a question I had (regarding normals) that reference this panel 'Shading / UVs':

Shading Panel

I do not have this panel in either object or edit mode. I have Blender 2.8 and my interface looks like this (in edit mode). How do I show this panel in Blender 2.8?

  • $\begingroup$ As a side comment I see a lot of Blender answers that reference things that do not appear to be there, maybe they are assuming some base knowledge I do not have. Providing more context would be really helpful generally to make it useful for a wider audience (including beginners) $\endgroup$ – Ade Mar 23 at 7:41

Since the 2.8 version, the interface has changed, now you can find all the normal functions in the header menu > Mesh > Normals (or AltN):

To see the faces orientation, open the Viewport Overlays panel and enable Face Orientation, the faces of the objects will appear blue or red, depending on their orientation:

  • $\begingroup$ Accepted this answer because not only does it demonstrate how to flip normals, it also shows how to see the face orientation and explains that the interface changed from 2.8 $\endgroup$ – Ade Mar 23 at 8:45
