Half of the menus for my properties panel are missing. I tried Googling the issue and found someone saying that if I switch from “layout” to “modeling” tab that they’d show up, but I tried that and it didn’t change anything. How do I get them back?
You can divide the screen into two by dragging down from the corner and then you can change it to properties like so:
I know this is an old question but I had the same problem today and may have figured out why this was happening. I had accidentally hit the Toggle Pin ID button so the properties tab was locked on to a single object. The pin icon doesn’t show up in Active Tool and Workspace Settings tab so you need to open one of the other tabs under the Properties tab. The tabs shown in locked view are different depending on which object and tool you had selected when the pin button was pushed.
