Hi all,

I can't get any backdrop in other windows than the view in top left window.
In this window it has to be in "top"-view mode, else the backdrop disapairs.
Anyone knows how to change this problem?

hi zhero2, you need to add the backdrop to each viewport independently.

Surrealist.

Well there are two things. One, if you add a backdrop in when the viewport in Top View, it will go away if you switch it to another view type. Two, already mentioned, you also have to set a backdrop for each viewport. So know in advance which one you want to use for what and set it up that way. If you change viewport angle you have to reset it in the new view. There is no BD option for perspective of course.

I know I have to add backdrop to each viewport. The problem is that I can't.
The images don't show up in the other viewports, still I have choosed an
image for the different ones in the display panel. Thats the strange problem :/

Ahhh... I solved it. The checkbox "show backdrop" was turned off in
"display options - layout". Strange the backdrop still showed up in the top
left view then. Anyway I'm happy :D
