I don't understand ortographic projection

I probably don’t undersand ortographic projection, or it is not working properly for me. for example, this is the standard PCB:

If I enable raytracing then it renders really fast and nothing is displayed:

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

The projection should affect only the geometry of the view, not other things. I think there’s something else going on. You should give the exact version information from Help → About → Copy Version Info. You should also tell if you have tried the Preferences. There are quite many settings which may effect to the visuals.
