Many years of blender experience and just encountered this infuriating little problem: I have a red ball mesh, a green rod mesh. No matter how they are positioned, the viewport displays the red ball mesh BEHIND the green mesh. SMDH

  • $\begingroup$ How do I correct this so that objects are displayed normally? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Please add images that show what the problem is. If you upload a file that illustrates the issue would be the fastest way to help you. You can use blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com to upload, then edit the resulting link into your original post. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Make sure you didn't activate X-ray for the green mesh. $\endgroup$
