The problem is that the camera position is inside the object and thus it doesn't show faces behind it, switch to perspective mode and you'll see quite well. Doing a fit all makes the camera to jump out of the object.

So, the question is how to make sure that the camera doesn't suddenly lie into a newly created object that is quite big.

Yes, I have noticed quite some times that camera cuts objects, and shows inside of them.

Have no idea why?

This simply happens when an object changes its dimensions and then swallows the camera. I think we can implement a function that checks whether the camera suddenly lies in the global bounding box and then for orthographic camera increase the distance accordingly. The user won't realize this change because it has no zooming effect. For perspective camera we do simply nothing because otherwise it has a zooming effect and in case the camera lies inside an object the user will see this anyway.

A new method Command::adjustCameraPosition() is implemented which adjusts the clipping planes and the camera position without a zoom effect (orthographic mode only). So, this method can be used in commands which the above scenario can happen but a "view all" fit is not wanted.

I applied it on the pad command and it works fine.

Done in rev. 4214 & 4215.
