Home - General / All posts - No "Orthographic" projection in M9?

In M8 I have often used the "Orthographic" projection which is found under "Azimuthal". When I import something like a dxf into M8, Manifold usually presents "Orthographic" as a sort of default choice. For drawings whose location on the surface of the earth doesn't matter or whose true projection is unknown, I often just accept "Orthographic".

I recently downloaded the M9 viewer, which I'm playing with while deciding about purchasing the full version of M9.

In the viewer I don't see the "Orthographic" projection, nor even the "Azimuthal" group. Are they or equivalents present in M9?

Manual page for the Orthographic.

And for the Azimuthal projections.

Thanks. The information in the manual is helpful, but it didn't actually tell me how to find the Orthographic projection in the projection dialog. However, I eventually found it, in the Custom tabl.
