Hello muffrules,

There is no keyboard shortcut for toggling the background picture, you’ll have
to make do using the button in the 3D Window header:

doesn´t a background pic slow down your system?

Backround pics are used for modelling… if they are blueprints and you place your vertexes by hand :stuck_out_tongue:

Yes… Using a background picture in blender slows down your system by a great amount.
That is why I wanted to know the shortway to switch the background pict. so I only have to have it there when I’m tracing it.
so thankyou very much Koryo for the button the press — I don’t know why I didn’t notice it.

Hmm… I never noticed it too! It seems to appear only when you have a picture set in the backround. Thanks Koryo!

sometimes it is much better to use a UV-mapped plane. Then, you do not notice any slowdown.
