Hello,
Is there any easy way to un-gimble lock the perspective view? it's easy with the camera view because you can type in HPB directly, but I often get my perspective view locked and then i cant use it.
Thanks for the help,
Glenn

Depends if it locks using the arrows then hold down alt and move the view port around using left click and drag that may unlock it.

or just change window view to 'none' then back o 'perspective'

This can clear up all kinds of openGL errors as well. I tend to get stray weirdness in perspective from time to time, so I've set up the view changes on the key shortcuts (numeric keypad) and it solves everything 95% of the time.

That's a problem I run into on occasions - really annoying!

or if you hold option and drag in the viewport to rotate, you'll never gimble lock. If you are locked it'll free you too.
