View Full Version : Axis switching positions between viewports

08-18-2011, 09:32 AM
Is there a way to make it so that my axis directions are consistent between viewports? ie: in perspective, it shows Z as up, and X and Y as the horizontal spaces, but when I switch to say the Right viewport, it shows Y as up, when it should be Z. Any idea what this is.

In this picture, the Right viewport is active, and my axis switches to having Y as the "UP" axis. I just want them to stay as "Z" up between viewports. Thanks for any tips

Set it to "World" or Local and it'll be uniform. It's normal behavior for "View" axis system...

I figured as much, but I wanted something that I could relate to better

Sorry, where do I go to change that, exactly?

It's a pulldown up top. It'll say 'view'. Right near your move/rotate/scale tools.

Ok, great, thanks. Found it. And once I change it, will it just stay with me for that session, or just that model, or will it always load as that until I change it?
