Default NOOB ALERT - "Where is the Modelling Menu Set!?"

Hi guys....


Yes, im a Maya noob... and im struggling!

I was watching a basic tutorial hoping i could get off to a flying start and creat a basic PROJECT... i guess i was wrong.

Even scared to post in here cause i feel im only going to get a dumb answer and make myself even more stupid than i already feel with this program...

Ok here goes.



For my project i firstly needed to be in the Modelling Menu Set and on my screen drop down i only have the following...!!!



Please tell me why!!!

Hi,

select the polygon menu set. I think in older versions this was called the modelling menu set.

cheers
