Orthographic grid alignment jumps/shifts when zooming
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When placing objects at large distances eg: x:2000 when zooming in and out on the object the grid in the background will jump/shift around left and right.

Simple Test from Default start-up .blend

1. Switch to front view and orthographic view
2. Duplicate the default cube
3. Changed its location to x: 2000, y: 0, z: 0 from the transform panel
4. Jump to the object using the period key on the numpad
5. Switch to wireframe view
6. Zooming in and out using the mouse scroll wheel
7. The grid visually jumps/shifts left and right in varying amounts based on the zoom level

This can be very distracting when needing to ensure that the object is snapped to a fixed grid, this jumping is not noticeable when editing an object close to the origin 0,0,0. Although the grid shifts this does not effect the snap to grid increment function which still works fine.
