How do I change the TOP ortho view to BACK ortho view for my BACK image?

check out the pic I uploaded to see what I'm talking about.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you want to make the view in that section look from the back? Or do you want to adjust your model so that the back view looks like the current top view? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Oct 29 '14 at 2:19

Quad view can be unlocked and customized.

While on Quad view (CTRLAltQ) press N to show the Properties panel on the right side. In the Display tab uncheck the Lock box.

Then move the mouse over to the quad you want to alter and make it whatever view you want.

In this case press CtrlNumpad 1 for back view. (and Numpad 5< to toggle ortho or perspective).

When you are satisfied you can lock the view again to prevent accidental changes.

Note: Any changes on quad view are lost once you go back to single view: The next time you switch to quad view it will revert to the default configuration, even if you had the lock box active.


On Blender 2.75 the procedure has been simplified:

To reverse the view on quad view. Hover over the view you want to change and press Numpad 9 to reverse the view. No need to press unlock
