I'm using Maya presets. The hotkeys don't seem to work ether in 3D or Quad view.

It doesn't really bother me in 3D View but it's a problem in quad as I can't seem to change my Top Ortho view to Back Ortho view to adjust for my reference image.

Keybindings show that I should press Ctrl + Numpad Number key, but it doesn't work, I unlocked the view-ports under "Display" and nothing happens.

When I tried it under Blender default settings it worked perfectly. Also I tried this on two separate computers with different scenes, same result.

I'm a beginner in Blender. https://i.stack.imgur.com/88Hj1.jpg

  • $\begingroup$ Did you change or customize any other hot keys manually? It may be a conflict with other key combination, or it may well be a bug in the Maya Preset, those are not as well maintained/tested as the default one. $\endgroup$ Oct 28, 2016 at 17:00
  • $\begingroup$ Mr Zak, you were correct! Pressing numbers instead of numpad worked! Please retype that as an answer so i can give you credit. $\endgroup$

Everything works as expected, it's just that the keybindings assume Ctrl+0 should be pressed in order to activate front ortho view according to the Maya interaction preset (not Ctrl+Numpad 0).

If numbers from Numpad were expected it would be visible from this setup.
