I'm running Blender 2.77 on OS X. I'm following a book that was written I believe for 2.72, and they mention a 'Pie Menu' add on that can be enabled in the UI area of Add Ons in User Preferences. Nothing's listed there, and pressing 'Q' does nothing in 3D view. Am I missing something? Did they abandon this, or is it hidden somewhere? Strangely I can find no documentation on a pie menu in 2.77.

The author seemed enthusiastic about this becoming a default feature in future versions.

  • $\begingroup$ Not seeing it... User Interface in Add-Ons is completely empty. I'm going to try to reinstall Blender, maybe it got lost somehow... $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 25, 2016 at 23:49
  • $\begingroup$ Are you installing the official build from blender.org? For me it's in the "community" section. Have you enabled that under "Supported Level" beneath the search bar? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ After downloading Blender again, and replacing the .app, I see it now. Not sure what happened there - but that seemed to have done it. Thanks for the feedback! $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 25, 2016 at 23:55

Deleted the .app in Applications, and downloaded Blender 2.77 again. Not sure what happened there, but I see the option now.
