Orthographic View Option not being saved

Hi there,

In the 3D System Panel, General Options, if you tick the Orthographic View option, after re-opening the FC file, the option although set, is not active.

Steps to reproduce:
-Create a new FC file
-Open 3D System Panel
-Change settings under General Options, tick Orthographic View.
-Save FC file
-Reload file
-Note Orthographic View option is ticked already, but the view is not orthographic (tested by panning onto the 3D Panel).

Thanks for the bug report.

I've looked into this and around two and a half years ago (in v8) this "orthographic view" feature was changed so that the 3d panel was always "3d" and the 2d panel was always "2d". However, it looks like the setting was not removed from the options window.

I think the decision to change it was because it was seldom used and caused confusion with the way objects were being viewed in the different settings. The fact that it's taken 30-odd months for it to be noticed probably justifies the decision. :)

I will remove the setting from the 3d options window so it is no longer an issue.
