I'm new in this and I'm working on the gingerbread man tutorial. My problem is that sometimes I don't find some buttons and I would like to know if there is a tool for finding them.

    $\begingroup$ For many functions you can press Space in the viewport, a search window will pop up, and then you can type part of the name and it will show up. It doesn't work for buttons in the Properties tabs though. $\endgroup$ – cybrbeast Mar 18 '14 at 10:43

  • $\begingroup$ Could you be more specific on which button you miss? $\endgroup$ – stacker Mar 18 '14 at 12:35
  • $\begingroup$ Are you looking for buttons in the UI or on your keyboard (hotkeys)? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mar 19 '14 at 6:25

If it's a keyboard shortcut you are looking for, you can try searching for the tool in CtrlAltU> User preferences > Input:

As for external resources, you can try the wiki, but beware that some parts are incomplete/out of date.

Another external resource which works well is google, usually searching for something like "blender <function name>" will get you results.

However, if all else fails you can always ask here ;)
