Managing the Transparency of Objects

Objects in nanoCAD have transparency properties. The transparency is used to reduce the visibility of objects or drawing fragments on the screen to increase the readability of the drawing.

The Transparency parameter is displayed in the Properties panel (General section) when one or several objects are selected and can have values from 0 to 100:

If a value is 100, the selected object becomes invisible. Totally opaque objects have values of 0.

The transparency of objects is not shown when printing or previewing the document.

To set the transparency for an object:


1.    Select an object.

2.    In the Transparency field of the General section in the Properties bar, specify the required value.
