Default Viewport Problem


When I changed unit setting to 'inch' from default setting 'centimeter' and changed grid setting of length & width to 240 units, I get a strange result.

I've attached the screenshots of the problem.

You'll notice that as I zoom out, it will start cutting off the visibility of the grid and the object, and eventually they will completely disappear.
Any idea guys?

It simply means that the camera can't see to the end of the grid.

This is a camera setting , you need to select the camera and hot ctrl + A in the attribute editor change the far clipping plane to something higher like 10000,000.
