"transparent fill" and "transparent stroke"

Recommended Posts

I have been attempting to find a way to more easily create a hidden line drawing such as is a common view option in 3D modeling packages. If we could have a transparent fill and transparent stroke that behaved like the colored fills and strokes, ie, hide or overwrite anything underneath them with all their control flexibility and options, it would be a very useful option to have.

See this discussion for what I mean with examples. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/87115-hidden-line-mode-for-only-strokes/

 

Thanks,

Erich

The transparency for each one is available right now. Select the element you want to change and then go to the Swatches. There you just click on the fill or stroke and at the right you set the Opacity.

Hope that help. :-)

No, you misunderstood what I meant. That setting is for that layer only. I mean a transparent fill and stroke that would affect all layers underneath as well. As a partially opaque colored fill or stroke would affect the layers underneath it, so the transparent fill or stroke would effectively clip anything underneath. See the thread I mentioned for an explanation for what I'm trying to achieve in the simplest way possible.

Sorry for my wrong answer. :-(
