Can't toggle viewport background
show user profile  Boing
Shift+B used to toggle my viewport background between my chosen bitmap and a solid colour but it's recently stopped working for me. I've gone into the keyboard shortcuts and it no longer seems to be assigned to anything, problem is, I can't find the command to re-assign it. I've checked all the obvious 'View' 'Toggle' and 'Viewport' headings but can't find anything, could someone tell me what the command is called to let me re-assign this please?

That opens the configuration box for backgrounds but it doesn't toggle the background on and off.

interesting, ive been using 3dsmax for 10 years and never knew about that button! ha!

I just use alt-B, turn it off for 1 viewport, switch viewports when I want grey, switch back when I want the image.

Does Shift+B work for you? if it does, can you do me a favour and go into your keyboard shortcuts list and tell me what command it is assigned to? I can't find it to re-assign mine......

Same! I never heard of that button either and here I thought I knew at least a little bit about 3ds max oh gee how wrong I was :D

Just wondering, do any of you happen to livestream your stuff? like on twitch or picarto or something? For me personally, I prefer watching livestreams on picarto since it's aimed at creative people only, which I like.

Alfred solved this for me on Autodesk forums, it's 'Show background toggle'
