Ortho function in YZ or XZ direction


When I use the ortho function in the perspective view in Rhino, I only seem able to move the cursor in the X-Y direction. I would like to use the ortho function also in the YZ or XZ direction. Is there a possibility to set the ortho function in other directions? I have searched the manual and the forum, but could find any reference or solution.

Kind regards,


You can use the AutoCPlane script that lets you work on the YZ and XZ CPlanes in the perspective view.
There have been different versions of this script but I like this one best:
AutoCPlane.py (9.0 KB)

I have my Swap Angle set at 15°.

Note that this function is built-in in the WIP for Rhino 6 as the OneView command.
