Clipping border (Alt B) makes a dark box around the selected area:


Setting the background color to the same color as the box doesn't work if you have Only render enabled.

How to make the box transparent instead?

  • $\begingroup$ @David I think the OP is asking how to theme the clipping display box. Imo theme makes more sense here than rendering.. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jul 1 '14 at 19:36
  • $\begingroup$ While there are a lot of colours you can change in a theme, not every colour is exposed in the theme settings. Some drawing is done by colours set within the code or as tints based on a set variation of a defined colour. I expect you will need to get a developer to create a patch to adjust this colour. As for only render - the world colour settings are shown in the background. $\endgroup$ – sambler Jul 2 '14 at 17:28
