Transparency Cell (Image Properties Section)

Office 2007

Determines the transparency level for a layer color.


0 - 100

Represents the percentage of transparency. The default is 0% (completely opaque).


Values are rounded to the nearest half percent. A value of 100% is completely transparent. Although a layer with completely transparent color appears the same as a layer with no color on the drawing page, it will interact with other objects on the page in the same ways as if its transparency is 0%. You can also set this value using the slider control in the Layer Properties dialog box (click Layer properties on the View menu).
