I seem to be missing several tools in Blender 2.62, or at least I'm not able to get to them the way the manual says they should be accessed. For example:

According to the Help file, the Bevel Tool is supposed to be accessible either with the Hotkey of CTRL-B or W > Bevel, or from Mesh > Edge > Bevel while in Editing mode, but it's not there. Nor am I able to access the Knife tool.

Any ideas where they've gone?

    $\begingroup$ IIRC these features where added after 2.62. Any particular reason you are using that version? The current version is 2.73a $\endgroup$

The knife tool is in 2.62, however it's nothing like the modern knife tool. It was rewritten into it's modern form in 2.63 with the introduction of bmesh.

The Bevel tool was also added in 2.63, after being missing since 2.5x.

However both these tools (and many others) have been improved enormously since then, so I highly recommend updating to the latest version.

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, I went ahead and updated. The part that had confused me is that the help file said it was there, but I guess didn't specify what version of 2.6 it was for. Thanks. $\endgroup$
