I am using Blender 2.93 with Maya modelling settings (alt + left mouse button for tumbling). It's not possible to rotate the view while using the knife tool. How can I fix this problem? Thanks for any help.

  • $\begingroup$ maybe assign rotation to alternative key that you can use while using knife? Or using default Blender settings $\endgroup$

I fixed the problem by reassigning the keys Alt + Left Mouse Button in the Blender Preferences > Knife Tool Preferences > Panning.
