I’m brand new to Blender. It looks really powerful, but I’m lost with the interface. I opened up a user preference panel to see the key bindings for the the 3D view. After doing that, I can’t figure out how to get rid of the panel. Its clear across the top.
In the process I also ‘lost’ the ‘File’ and ‘Add’ menus. I can’t even save my work or add a new mesh object.
I looked through the forums and the online docs, but didn’t find anything useful. The manual mentions you can join panels, but they have to be the same size. I tried making several “User preference” panels across the top and played with the size in an attempt to "join’ the 3D view and one of the “user prefs” panel directly above it. No luck.
I using 2.68 under Ubuntu.
Having to kill and restart every time I get the UI in a weird state is frustrating
