    2019 Can't toggle Projection mode

    Any idea why my "Projection mode" parameter is greyed out?
    I've got another View with the same View Template that I can change it.
    The View is not locked or assigned a Scope Box.
    I can't think of anything else that would affect the Projection Mode

    Pinned? The drastic difference in eye elevation and target elevation? Just throwing darts here.

    Its because you have it placed on a sheet. They disable the ability to make an uncropped perspective view when it is placed on a sheet.

    DING DING DING !!!!
    We have a winner !!
    oc nailed it. That 3D View was, indeed, on a Sheet.
    I would also explain why, when I duplicated it, the Duplicated view did allow me to change Projection Mode.
    New tools, new quirks, I guess.
    It makes perfect sense that you can't screw it up once it's on a Sheet. Just have to remember that.
    Thanks, everyone.

    Why would being on a sheet make a difference if the view is perspective or orthogonal? I can change everything else about the view once it is on a sheet, there is no reason this couldn't be changed as well

    Maybe something to do with "uncropped perspective" new feature in Revit 2019?
