do you mean the perspective grid? turn it off under view > perspective grid.

and on the offchance, check under the constrain angle in the general preferences and see if it's set to something other than zero.

Hey Rick,

The shortcut for toggling in and out of 3D mode is command+shift+i (ctrl+shift+i if on a PC).

Hope this helped!

Hi Rickforge. I had the same problem and it certainly wasn't answered by reading any number of posts on Google (including those that followed your initial enquiry) but I finally stumbled on the answer through a lengthy process of personal trial and error. The good news is it simply involves a 'toggle' action. And just to clarify, it has nothing to do with turning "perspective' off or on - perspective is another function entirely, a distinction seemingly lost on a good many. You turn 'Perspective' off or on by Ctrl-Shift l not  '3D mode'. Instead, if you have drawn something in 3D unless you hit 'D' (to change from 'Default Stroke and Fill' you are fated to remain (forever) in 3D mode until you start another file. If, rather that hitting D you prefer to click on an icon you can find it nested in the lower-left corner of your tool bar as part of the 'Fill' and 'Stroke' icons area. looking like a miniature version of them  I know this answer was late in coming but may save some poor soul a long and frustrating search for a solution. Best regards, Ken

ken, the reason people are replying with answers that relate to the perspective grid is that there is nothing in illustrator called '3D mode'. there are 3D effects that you might remove by invoking the default fill and stroke, but there is nothing permanent about them. they can be removed at any time from the appearance palette.

I agree Doug (?) but, having being trying to find the same answer myself and using a variety of search fields including 'mode', 'effect', 'style' etc. I guess Rickforge was simply looking for an answer to his (her?) problem, rather than a correction on terminology. Apologies if my response upset the purists who are clearly aware of the distinction between the terms.

The correct answer is in #1

It refers to the menu where you can find everything you need including the shortcut.

Unfortunately many people don't bother to mark the correct answer.

Correcting terminology has nothing to do with purism. It helps people find the correct term so they can look up their problem in the documentation (orsearch more efficiently on Google next time they have run into an issue with a function)
