This is probably a stupid question but it's making me go crazy. I have an object and in object mode, it looks normal.

enter image description here

But when I go to edit mode (orthographic), I can see all faces even if I'm not using the wireframe viewport.

It seems to be fine in perspective however.

It has no modifiers whatsoever and it's never happened before. Thanks for help in advance

    $\begingroup$ You have X-Ray mode on. 2.79 is pretty old and I don't remember how to update the setting, but there's a setting for disabling it. In newer versions of Blender it's in the header. $\endgroup$ Aug 12 '21 at 13:51
  • $\begingroup$ @MartyFouts I found the x-ray in the properties panel > object > display, but it's not checked either $\endgroup$ Aug 12 '21 at 14:12
  • $\begingroup$ Hello! maybe try Alt + Z to disable it? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If it's only working in edit mode, it doesn't seems to be X Ray, the only thing that could cause that (as far as i know) could be "Limit selection to vibisible" (the white square on the right of face selection icon) but it looks like it's off... Try a factory reset. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Did you try flip the normals? $\endgroup$

Okay, after a lot of attempts it seems like the file itself was corrupt in some way because not only did I just find out my other object in the scene disappeared (bottom part of a butter dish lol) but also the problem was immediately solved after I started a new file and pasted my object into it. Weird.

First of all, it's an older version i.e 2.79. Look I think you've switched to the toggle mode (Alt+Z) Toggle XRay mode

    $\begingroup$ I think the equivalent in 2.79 is limit selection to visible, which makes no difference whether I click it or not. $\endgroup$ Aug 13 '21 at 20:01
