When I click and drag a 3D plot it rotates and when I release the mouse, the size of the image changes. This is distracting to me, I'd much rather have it look the same when I release the mouse button

Edit: Spherical region has improved it quite a bit but there is still some resizing:

  • $\begingroup$ You did set it to True, didn't you? Why not post the thing you have trouble with… oh, and look at RotationAction too. $\endgroup$ Jun 6, 2015 at 9:13

    $\begingroup$ SphericalRegion->True and RotationAction->"Clip" seem redundant, choose the one or the other. To avoid the clipping you can just zoom out or add some padding around the image for example with option ImagePadding->20 $\endgroup$

Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3} , {y, -2, 2}, SphericalRegion->True, RotationAction -> "Clip"]
