When I switch from 2D to 3D mode, Altium zooms to the spot on the board I was viewing the last time I was in 3D mode.

The behavior I would like: When I switch from 2D mode to 3D mode, I see same part of the board that I was looking right before switching from 2D to 3D (and vice versa).

Is there a setting that does this?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I would also like to know this as well. I never really thought about the possibility of being able to change that, but now that you mentioned it, I really want to be able to do this. \$\endgroup\$ Aug 30 at 20:28

    \$\begingroup\$ For such a tool-specific question, the tool's own support website and/or user forum is usually your best bet. There is really no electronics design content in this question. \$\endgroup\$ Aug 30 at 21:10

From 3D to 2D, camera position doesn't move: Ctrl+Alt+2
From 2D to 3D, camera position doesn't move: Ctrl+Alt+3

See Altium Documentation

These commands aren't well documented and I came across this by chance a few months ago.
