I am not sure how it happened but all my faces are now semi-transparent in Edit Mode.

enter image description here

I have tried multiple settings to get solid faces back. I am not in wire frame mode and I made sure that "Limit selection to visible" is disabled as see in the picture. I have no idea why I can't get my solid faces back.

Any help is greatly appreciated,

    $\begingroup$ A possible cause may be the 3d viewport clipping parameters, give it a check. For a scene like this a default 0.1-1000 should works fine. $\endgroup$ – Carlo Oct 20 '15 at 15:16

Enable limit selection to visible enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ The OP said that he tried that, and in his picture it is enabled. $\endgroup$ – David Oct 20 '15 at 16:19
