Camera parallel projection checkbox missing in PV 5.3.0
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello,

I am running ParaView 5.3.0 on a freshly installed openSUSE Leap 42.3 machine. Installation was done from the Leap 42.3 repositories. I seem to be unable to find the switch to activate "Camera Parallel Projection", which renders this version of PV almost useless for me.

1. Can someone point me to the right place where I can find the switch?
2: If not, where can I get older versions of PV?

Until recently I used version 4.something, which had the corresponding checkbox on the Properties=>View panel. According to the included ParaView Guide, the checkbox should still be there (see attached image). Reality looks quite different though (see 2nd image).

Can somebody help?

Thank you!

Hi blaise,

What you could try is to active "toggle advanced properties", this you can do by clicking the "gear" icon in the top right corner of the "properties" box (the same thing needed to be done in older versions of Paraview to enable this "Camera Parallel Projection" setting).
Maybe this will help you, good luck.

Cheers

Hi Swempa,

thank you for your hint, that was it. I could have sworn I tried that before, but apparently I missed this "gear" button! Incredible!!!

Thank you and best regards!
