# How to view hdri in viewport "SOLID" mode?

I'm using Blender version 2.82.

The HDRI is visible in the render mode.

• If it is not possible someone tell me please , cause i searched about 2.7 and that was possible in 2.7 Apr 8, 2020 at 15:48
• That's not possible as far as I'm aware. The environment texture is only shown in Material Preview and Rendered mode. Apr 8, 2020 at 19:12
• It was possible in older versions :| youtube.com/watch?v=OHisRVyczgE Apr 12, 2020 at 13:48
• The question is why? What exactly are you trying to accomplis? Solid mode is a simplified representation, independent of the scene lighting for a good reason: so that you can evaluate the shapes correctly without having to compute complex lights and textures. Are you trying to use a background image to assist you with the modeling?

In Blender 2.91.0 I see the so called Material Preview mode which allows what you're looking for.
