append grayed out

Post by thijser » Wed Feb 06, 2013 9:29 am

I'm trying to import a material given to me in a .blend file. However when I go to the append button it is greyed out. Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm using the mac version of blender and am currently a complete noob to blender.

You have to be in object mode in the file to which you are appending in order to append something. I suspect that you are trying to import your material from edit mode.
