[Affinity Designer] How to remove transparency from objects without transparency set

Recommended Posts

I guess the title says it all. I have a few objects that have about 85-90% transparency - but it is not reflected in any of the settings for the object or for the group. Am I missing something here?

It's a handfull of objects I created in another file, where they did not have transparency issues. Some of them had an intended transparency setting though. Once I copied them over to the other project, the problem arose.

I've checked for fill-opacity, transparency gradient, layer opacity and layer effect property.

They are not, no, I've gone through every related group to make sure of just that.

And yes, the colours are at 100%. I'm starting to think it's a bug :/

From what app and or file format are these from?

...and upload the file with these elements in so we can take a look.


Have you checked the blend modes and the Fill Opacity when using the Fill Tool (G) and especially the gradient fills and their node opacities. Also the Fill opacity on the Colour Panel and Swatches Panel
