I dont have any capabilities to create 3d text. There are no buttons on my bottom left in photoshop. After typing text , I cannot go the type and extrude nor do I have anything lit in 3d.

Hiya Katherine,

The 3D features in Photoshop are highly dependent on your hardware. What OS are you running? Are you running Photoshop in 32-bit or 64-bit? Can you see the 3D entry on the Command Menu between Filter and View? Under Preferences > Performance, is the section for Graphics Processor Settings enabled / is the Use Graphics Processor box checked? What kind of card does it show? Are Advanced Setting enabled?

I've many more questions, but these should cover 85% of the issues...
