BG Image Pan in ortho view

Can anyone tell me how to pan in an ortho view and keep the BG image and camera from separating?

The manual says ctl alt but I can only get this to work for zoom and rotate. None of the lock check boxes make any difference.

The sliders work of course.

Driving me a little batty.

Edit: Ah OK. IT works with the pen but not the mouse. Strange.

Not to bump this but....

I still can not figure out how to get zoom to be useful with an ortho camera using an image plane.

It is sloooooooooooooooooow to impossible. Basically useless as I have it anyway.

Same object, scale and so on works fine in a perspective view.

I found some preference settings that seemed to maybe address this, not sure, but nothing I set, worked.

Has anyone had any experience with this?

is ctrl+alt not working..?
its zooming like expected...

importing the image as plane would be a workaround...

Yeah, with ctrl alt the zoom is real slow. Like the increments are real tiny. OK with just Alt.

Thought about a plane as a workaround.... but this should work.

What does work as a workaround also is to open a floating properties window to the side and use the slider - lame - but it is the only way to get this zoom to work.

Doesn't anyone use BG images in Mubdbox? I can't be the only one seeing this.

BG images are usually a part of my workflow in all stages of the process as I work initially from references - most of the time. So for me this is a major show stopper.

no slowness here...

That's odd. I mean, this is odd. I can't figure it.

Slow as molasses here.

Edit: or to be sure, have you tried to get up very close to the object?

Because if the object is far away, it works sort of. But close up, it just slows way down.

Not the near plane, and selecting faces and using F does not work 'cause that messes up the camera setting on the BG image.

So have you tried this with an image loaded and trying to get up real close?
