I'm using hidden wire on the properties panel while doing retopology work and sometimes I accidentally hit a shortcut key where get this:

enter image description here Anyone know what is happening and what can I press to get back to the default display? So far all I can do to stop this is appending the object onto a new file.

  • $\begingroup$ Did u accidentally hit 'H' ? This is the shortcut for hiding selected entities. 'ALT+H' is used to unhide them. $\endgroup$ – Delagone Feb 10 '17 at 8:03
  • $\begingroup$ Can you upload a simplified copy of the file with problem part ? I don't think this can be caused by hiding geometry - if it hides faces it hides edges as well. If screenshot on the right shows only one object (and nothing beneath) then likely it's a bug, like here $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Feb 10 '17 at 10:18
  • $\begingroup$ @Vectorius Just saw this answer today, and thought that maybe it was related to the same issue $\endgroup$ – Rick Riggs Feb 16 '17 at 0:54
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, its is the same problem, according to the comments it may be a bug $\endgroup$ – Timo Feb 20 '17 at 12:15

While I'm not sure what key you're hitting to get that view (perhaps Z?) it looks like maybe your normals are not consistent. In edit mode, hit Ctrl+N to recalculate the normals so all the faces are oriented correctly.

  • $\begingroup$ I thought so too, but its not, but CTRL+N does nothing $\endgroup$ – Timo Feb 10 '17 at 4:50
