Transparency on Rich Texts & Rectangles makes their text translucent in editing canvas :-), but not so for Labels :-(

Dave shared this problem 3 years ago
Solved

Setting the transparency slider (in the "background" section of the properties editor) for Rich Text and Rectangle widgets makes the contents of the widget correspondingly translucent in the editing canvas. I like this, because I can see what my page is going to look like without having to run a simulation.


Setting transparency for a Label widget doesn't work like that in the editing canvas.


I understand that the canvas is not 100% WYSIWYG (e.g., drop shadows), but this one seems more like a bug than a feature :-).


Thank you
