About transparency

In CuteDraw, you can make shapes, lines, fills, and shadows transparent so that you can see through them. You can vary the percentage of transparency of CuteDraw objects from 0 (fully opaque, the default) to 100% (fully transparent).

You can do this most easily in the Formatting shapes dialog box, which you open by clicking the Fill & Shadow on the Shape menu.

Note  By setting the transparency of all aspects of shapes (text block, lines, fills, and shadows) to 100%, you can make both open and closed shapes completely transparent.

Apply transparency to a shadow

  1. Select the shape or shapes whose shadows you want to make transparent.

  2. On the Shape menu, click Fill & Shadow. Or right click the shape, on the pop menu, click Fill & shadow.

  3. In Shadow table, set the Transparency slider to the percentage of transparency you want, and click OK.
