this is something that's been bothering me for a while and i've yet to find a solution.

sometimes when i'm editing a model the object is transparent in edit mode, i do not have wire turned on in display and limit selection is off.

Have tried to change face in preferences > theme but no luck. Also tried to change my clipping and it didn't help.

Is this a bug or am i missing something obvious?

Enable this button ("Limit selection to visible")

Also, you must setup more usefull limits here:

The result of "End"/"Start" mast be as low as it possible. Now you have 299621/0.000001=296210000000 - it is very big! Increase the first value and reduce the second, so that the result of the division becomes less than million.

  • $\begingroup$ @KevinDoan This looks exactly like a clipping problem. Adjusting clipping distance should fix it. Don't use 0.000001 ever. 0.1 or 0.01 is good enough. Float precision is the culprit. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Clipping was correct, specifically making sure the ratio was right. Thanks. $\endgroup$
