I intended to select objects with "Selection group" tool, so in order to achieve that:

  1. pressed B hotkey with Alt or Ctrl or Shift button;

  2. moved mouse to form rectangular area.

As a result it removed everything what was outside of rectangular area, forming infinite rectangular pyramid with it's tip on the position of my viewport when I was looking from when making selection. I can rotate around that pyramid now, where only objects (their parts) fitting that rectangular area are visible.

How can I cancel it to see all my objects back? Esc doesn't work.

Don't know what was that, but I think I fixed it:

  • View -> Toggle Quad View

    ... objects visibility was still restricted to lie within that pyramid, but it was visible from 4 different sides

  • View -> Toggle Quad View (again)

    ... can see everything now

  • $\begingroup$ yeah, that fixed it for me. thanks $\endgroup$ Oct 13, 2020 at 13:57
