can't add material to some objects

I can’t add materials to some objects in the scene, if I try to create a new object (for example cube) I still can not add any material but for the objects which already have materials I can edit them and add new materials too. When I select an object without material and press material icon on the toolbar it has an empty window and I can’t add a new material. What did I do wrong?

Have you tried scrolling up the material panel, maybe the New material button is out of view

What renderer are you using ?
Show some screenshots of the material panel


I feel very ashamed but yes, I just had to scroll…
I’m sorry for asking but I was really struggling and searching in the internet what could be a possible problem for a few hours.


the same happened to me. thanks to this post i found the reason
