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?

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.

enter image description here

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.

    $\begingroup$ 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). $\endgroup$

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.
