Hi! I’ve a feeling this is one of those Noob questions to which there’s a really simple answer, but I just can’t figure it out.
I’m trying to rotate the view so that the z-axis points to the left (as you look at it), with the y-axis still pointing up and the x-axis now pointing out of the screen. I need the grid to still show behind the axes as well. (I’m trying to model a face using a background image with a side profile, so I need the image to show up behind my model; it’s also why I want the z-axis to point to the side.)
Every time I try to rotate the view using the NUMPAD keys, I get the z-axis pointing straight up, as if I wanted my side profile to be looking straight up as well; and every time I try to rotate the view manually, it moves the grid (and my background image) so that I can no longer see them.
(Just a little extra info–I’ve split the screen to edit the same object on both a front-facing bg image and a side-facing image, to better access all three dimensions. So I can’t just rotate my object to face left, because it also rotates in the split screen and no longer faces front.)
Any help would be appreciated! :o
