Have you enabled the Curve Tools in the preferences (Edit > Preferences > Add-ons)? When the add-on is enabled the pictured entries in the Edit tab for the Curve Tools// appear on my system. I've tested this for both 2.91 and 2.92.

Yes, I have enabled curve tools and loop tools.


The loop tools just showed up. I have no idea when it came out. But I still have issues with curve tools. It didn't show up like what the tutorial describes.
Does that only happen to me?

According to your screenshot it works. You have the Curve Info, Curve Edit, Intersect, Surfaces, Sanitize and Utilities panels. What exactly are you missing that you expected to show up? Also what tutorial are you referring to?

like one curve, two curve or advanced features. I cannot find them...

What do you mean by "one curve", "two curve"? Please be a bit more descriptive. Are you perhaps looking for the Extra Objects add-on for curves?

I see what you mean. The UI has changed a little and the documentation doesn't appear to be up to date. The screenshot is from the 2.81 version. The same options are still there though. For instance the Curve Outline is now only named Outline and is in the Curve Edit panel.

@Vladimir Spivak (cwolf3d) and @Aaron Carlisle (Blendify) the documentation would need an update.

@Lin Chen (sherryblack1111) Just to clear up the confusion, the website is Blender's manual, not just some tutorial. I thought you were referring to a YouTube video you've found.

Yes, I watched some tutorials from YouTube, then I read the manual.
I am a beginner, and just feel very confusing. That's why I am here to ask.

Aaron Carlisle (Blendify) changed the subtype of this task from "Report" to "To Do".
