I just opened an Electrum wallet.  I sent BTC to it from another wallet (coinbase).  The transaction shows as pending on coinbase but nothing is showing up in my Electrum wallet.  Does it not appear until it is confirmed or am I missing something?

Check your receiving address on

If it shows your address contains the coins from coinbase then try restarting your electrum wallet.

If that doesn't work then try the instructions below. Sometimes a server electrum's connected to gets out of sync with the Bitcoin network. Selecting a different one fixes the problem.

Click tools, then network. A popup box should open. Uncheck "select server automatically" and keep selecting new servers from the list that appears, then clicking the OK button until your balance shows up.
