Cannot reproduce here.

For me, clicking on this

corresponds to hitting 1 on the Numpad.
Are you saying this is reversed for you?

That being said, your gpu is also not officially supported anymore

No, this is not reversed for me.

According to the graphics representation the Green, Red or Blue DOT represents the negative axis. The Green, Red or Blue Arrows represent the Positive axis.

For the Red arrow X (Numpad 3) and the Blue arrow Z (Numpad 7) this is correct.
For the Green arrow Y (Numpad 1) this is not.

There might be a reason for this, but indeed FRONT/BACK seem to be not in line with the others...
But this is also true for the menu entries [View > Viewpoints]

CC @William Reynish (billreynish): Any reason why we are mapping it like this?

  • FRONT [without modifier key] is looking down the positve axis
  • TOP [without modifier key] is looking down the negative axis
  • RIGHT [without modifier key] is looking down the negative axis

this might all be defined like this for a right-handed cartesian coordinate system, I am not aware of this though, will leave up to others to decide...
