I am modelling a scene from a photo. As I am doing so, I need the wireframe mode to show the background image as well to see where I should position objects. However, the background image only appears in solid mode, not wireframe. I am using an fSpy file as the camera calibration. Initially, the wireframe mode had the background image, but now it doesn't show anything.enter image description here The wireframe mode doesn't have the background image. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ If you use import image as plane it will not display in wireframe. If you add an image->Background, it will stay visible in wireframe. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It's just bring an image to front hiding a geo. P.S. For the nightly build(2.80.74) by 07/05/2019 the problem is solved. $\endgroup$
