I was following this tutorial about creating a spaceship in Blender:
As advised I created 3 background images for the three views to be uploaded via the properties bar (N). I did not fail to switch to the ortho mode with the NumPad 5, so that is settled.
After importing the three pictures there is a problem: I assign for example the top view background picture to the top view, NumPad 7 and it is visible. As soon as I assign, say the front picture to the front view and I switch back to the top view, the picture cannot be seen there any more. I have been trying all around for hours and I always end up with the only the last assigned background picture visible and the others then "gone". I run blender 2.76 in portable mode. Anybody any idea?
Sorry for the bad link, I forgot to set the filefolder to visible to others except me... Since my status does not allow to upload more than the 15 screenshots here is the correct link
I think I managed to generate a .blend with the images stacked. The link to upload it in MrZak's post did not work though. I am posting an alternative for the download.
I have read through your advised literature. The load UI was not unchecked.
Meanwhile I have noticed that whenever I try to save the project in the .blend, only the last uploaded picture/blueprint remains, even with the image packed. This means that when I open it, only the last picture remains.
Again sorry for any inconvenience with my virtually poor formatting skills and I much appreciate your efforts.
