In this question:

How to make a bevel on text

... the screenshot:

... shows Geometry panel, with Modification: section, with Offset and Extrude inside - how can I show this panel?

• It isn't the panel, those are options of the selected object in the Properties editor. They will be shown for any object of the curves type. If you edit your question with some context may be it could be easier to answer it. – Mr Zak Feb 22 '17 at 12:05
• Those options are part of the properties for Text objects. Curve objects will have a similar menu, but not meshes. – user1853 Jan 28 '18 at 0:47

ah found it, partially through here:

You simply have to click on that icon with two white dots connected with a curved line (have no idea how its called, when I do a mouseover over it, I get:

Type of active data to display and edit
Data: Object data
Python: SpaceProperties.context
bpy.Data.screens("Default") ... context


... which tells me absolutely nothing - but by the icon image, I'd guess this submenu is called "Curves"); and then you get Geometry panel...

• The tab is called 'object data'. It is the same name the tab would have for meshes, where there is a triangle instead of a curve – quiliup Jul 15 '18 at 22:06
