New user with ribbon bar question


I have no experience with other drafting programs or CAD, though do with paper and
pencil drafting. I have downloaded Jerry Craigs textbook- but find it hard to actually
follow at times as the pictures he shows and my screen do not match. He has ribbon
bars that I do not- and at times the options he shows I do not have. Is this because
I have the free version? Though just downloaded, do I need somesort of update-
or do I need an earlier version?
Thank you for any assistance.

Jeff,
I don't have Jerry's textbook but it was probably written when the previous version
of SolidEdge 2D was available. The latest version, which I assume you have, has
a very different GUI. The options you don't seem to have just me be hidden and will
take some digging to find them. That's one of the problems, in my opinion, with
the current version of the software.
