I'm learning how to use Blender through numerous tutorials. Today, I came to a point where I'm not sure if there is something wrong with the version (2.77) of the program, or if I'm doing something incorrect. I will attach a screenshot (on the left is shot of the documentation I'm reading and on the right is the Blender window). I'm asking about the missing Properties panel > Textures tab options.
Could someone help me find them?
