Default Viewports driving me crazy!

Ahh I'm being so stupid but I can't work out how to reset my viewports..

For some reason my top 2 viewports are imitating each other, if I change one to top, they both change to top, if I change one to pers, they both go to pers!

How do I simply reset my viewports to default?

Any screenshots? It could be that you switched the top panels to look through the same camera, sometimes it's something silly like that.

Lmao!!
I just figured it out COMPLETELY by accident.

I accidentally held space bar and click and that lets me change the viewport to top/front/whatever

Yay

Actually its exactly as I thought, you have the two top panels looking though the same camera, you need to change one of them to a camera that's not in use, in this case the perspective camera, or you're just going to run into this problem again. Though for some reason you're getting a perspective angle through and ortho camera, I don't use the viewcube but I suspect that is what changed an otherwise orthographic view to a perspective angle.

Thanks Genny
Actually I don't use the viewcube, I hate the thing.

You know you hold Alt and Left Click to tumble?

Well I accidentally held Space and Left Click which changed it!

Thank you for your help

I know there's a way to get a persp angle through an ortho camera but I just can't remember how lol aaah now that's going to bug me into testing it. Anyways, happy modeling
