Short description of error
When I rotate view from object orthographic (object top, left, etc. set with "Align View to Active"), view not switch to perspective as it would be with rotating from orthographic world top, left, etc.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Have Autoperspective enabled in setting
  2. Have view set to Perspective, not Orthographic
  3. Align view to active object (for example Shift+Numpad7). See that view goes to User Orthographic
  4. Rotate view with MMB. View still set to User Orthographic, not User Perspective.



Event Timeline

I don't find any problem to follow the previous steps reported on my system (Auto Perspective ON as default), linux Blender 2.80 f6cb5f54494e AMD FX8350, 16GB DDR3, GTX690 2+2 GB VRam- Nvidia drivers 435.17

The operating system, main memory size, GPU brand and model, GPU driver version and Blender hash or its build date may be needed by developers to investigate this issue

Update your GPU drivers from Nvidia support site can solve this problem

Thank You

Why should this have any connection with GPU driver? It's not a crash or anything like that.

I mean if my report is not a bug, but more like a suggestion, then you can close it.
But I think it's intuitive that autoperspective should work same way with object ortho views as it works with world ortho views

I can confirm the issue. Seems to be a bug, not sure why the current behavior should be intended.
