Grids in viewports

Recommended Posts

when enabling 'extents before cut plane' the grid disappears? Need to show columns and only workaround seems to be to duplicate the viewport

Hi @station,

This is a known issue.  I took a look at the test file I had with the issue and discovered a way to correct the problem in that file.

This is what I did:

  1. Turn off both  "Display extents before cut plane" and "Display extents beyond cut plane"
  2. Update the viewport.
  3. Now set both "Display extents…" settings as you wish
  4. Update the viewport

From this point on, the grid lines displayed as expected with any combination of those settings.

Please let me know if that helps you.

Brilliant - thank you.

 

You're welcome!  I'm just happy I found a way to fix it.

And it makes sense in a cad world!

 

Well, I'm not sure which part makes sense since the feature should not require a secrete combination to unlock it.  😉 

 

BTW:  I noted this workaround on the bug report in case it points to the source of the problem.

 

Best,

Matt

it just seems that there is always a workaround and it always involves clicking on everything, turning everything on and off and finally the 4 'R's  redo, refresh, relax, reboot (in any order)

Right.  We're trying hard to try to reduce the number of 3 of those R's so you can do the one that's left more often.  relax...
