In an attempt to solve a problem with Blender 2.49, I tried Blender 2.5 Beta. However, after reading and watching some tutorials on the new interface, I’ve noticed that my interface is relatively blank compared to everyone else. All the boxes are there, but most of the boxes have no buttons. Some of the various keyboard commands, like ‘T’, hide and show the side panel, but the side panel is always empty. Other keyboard commands and some of the entries in the pop up command search box, do not work.
I’ve attached a screen shot of the default scene that Blender loads with.
This situation exists in both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the software and I run Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium.
Is there something I’m missing or is this an issue with Blender?
