gridlines disappear when camera horizontal and rotated. No option to return in overlay menu. Blender 2.81
Confirmed, LowPublicBUG


Blender Version
Broken: 2.81
Worked: 2.79

When the camera is horizontal (keypad 1 or 3), axis and grid lines appear. When the camera rotates around the z axis (keypad 4 or 6), all grid lines disappear. In blender 2.79 and previous versions, the 0xy grid would still be visible. In the overlay dropdown menu, the grid checkbox is greyed out and selecting/deselecting does not fix the issue.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Enter blender 3D view (main default)
  • Press keypad 1
  • Press keypad 4
