When I start up either Qgis 3.02 or 2.18.19 and create a new project and add a new vector layer, it doesn't appear in the large viewer. I tried loading the roads.shp and the other .shp files within the tutorial and nothing appears. It shows up on the legend but that's it.

Is the layer checked in the layers panel? And what happens if you click on "zoom to layer" or "zoom full" in the View menu?

I got it working now. Had something to do with the roads.shp file. I just re-extracted that file (and the others associated with it) and it works perfectly fine now :)
