# How do I clear the render border?

In the 3d viewport I am using a border region to only render things inside the selected region. I did this with CtrlB. I cannot get rid of the region. How can I make the border disappear?

• I found this question on a search engine when trying to hide texture borders. The solution was to disable mipmaps in Blender menu "File" -> "User Preferences" -> "System". – baptx Sep 24 '19 at 18:17

Use Ctrl + Alt + B to clear the render border, or if you open the Space menu and type "render border", you should see the option.

There is also Shift + B, but this is the legacy shortcut for border render IIRC and it only works when looking through the camera. Use Ctrl + B as you can have different render borders for the viewport (when doing realtime rendering) and the camera.

• Thorny stuff! Control Alt B should really be memorized because it's not the natural inverse / release for Control B and without it you're seriously locked-up. Meanwhile, the insidious thing to be emphasized about Shift B is that it's the (very useful!) zoom border in ALL BUT camera views (where it has the duplicate ["legacy"] function described). – user11531 Feb 11 '15 at 12:54
• Wow! I've been struggling with this problem for a long time. Thanks for a solution! – Paul Gonet Nov 12 '15 at 21:17

On the View Properties Panel (N to open it) you can find the "Render Border" checkbox. So, select/unselect the chebkbox to enable/disable the render border appearance.

There is also a "border checkbox" in "Properties > Render > Dimensions panel", SteveW posted an image of the panel in this post.
