I don't really know how to describe this accurately, but the thing is, two views, one is overlapped by the other, but their position is the same. If I enable 3D perspective, sometimes I had this feeling that their origin Y position is not the same. and then i'll have to switch back to 2D.

Hope you can draw some helper lines to help me eliminate this visual issue.

Another thing that i really have to mention is that when 2 views are both the subviews of a parent view, and thus they should appear in the inspect canvas at the same level. but when one of the view's subview tree is expanded, they are not looks like in the same level.

    Hello Tony,

    Is there any way you could take a screenshot of the canvas and annotate the screenshot showing where you think the rendering is wrong? It's not clear to me based upon your description of the issue.

    I have attached a screenshot. The candidate bar 's top is actually pinned to the gray background view. But if you use 3D perspective, it is hard to tell. I have to switch to 2D to confirm.

    Ah, I see now. That's not a bug - more an artefact of perspective and rendering into 3D space, but I can see how it can be confusing in use.

    There are two options:

    1. As you suggested: switch to 2D mode when you need to check;
    2. Adjust the view separation in 3D mode. You can do this by holding down Option (⌥) and Command (⌘) while using your mouse scroll wheel to cause the views to come closer to together (or farther apart).

    If you ever get "lost" in 3D mode, you can also use "Canvas → Reset View" in the menu to reset the 3D perspective to the default.

    Please let me know if this helps.
