    Default Block transparency

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    In block properties, you'll find the transparency option, but it does not seem to have an effect on the block at all, no matter what you set.

    Indeed, that's is possibly by design (just a guess) looks like you might have to put the block on it's own layer and set the transparency for the layer.

    I found that if you change all the objects in the block to Transparency ByBlock, it will work, but I can not make it work for attribute text.
