Can't see "Motion" or "Drivetrain"?

I downloaded the Windows version. I believe I am scrolled all the way to the top, but my list of blocks starts with “Looks”. I don’t seem to have “Motion” or “Drivetrain”?

they will show up once you add devices and configure them. In the upper right hand corner there is an icon next to the ? icon. Click on it and set up motors and you will see the motor blocks.

Thank you! That did it.

To anyone with the authority checking this… mentioning in the “Getting Started” video that you can not follow along until you add devices would be a nice add for complete noobs like me :wink:

Thanks for the feedback! We’ll definitely add a mention in our tutorial videos regarding that some blocks may not be visible until devices are configured.

As another helpful hint, you can use the “File -> Open Examples” to open a pre-configured template for a number of the standard VEX IQ models. These templates will be blank programs but have all of the appropriate devices pre-configured in the ports defined in the build instructions.

Thanks again for the feedback!

Thanks. Those examples are helping a lot, too
