Transparency value

Hello.

Is there a way to set the transparency value of an background  image of a textbox, so, that it would be the same in each box?

Without copying the box.

I don't think so you can assign the value using variable. You have to set it manually.

Re: Transparency value

You can create a theme based on a text box with the transparency set to your liking. Then you can apply that theme on all your text boxes.


talk is cheap, supply exceeds demand

Re: Transparency value

But there is an alternative

1) 1st adjust the transparency  of text object. Then note down the RGB of text object color using colorpix software

2) Put this RGB value to Variable for eg RGB(225,10,12)

3) Now call this variable in Calculated color option.

You can use this variable to all the text objects

Note : when you put variable to calculated color, set transparency to 0

Hello,

Thank you for your input. I will take a closer look into that reply soon.

But I am using background images, not colors?

Re: Transparency value

Well, thank you anyway for your input. It was a good tip if someone (or me) comes across for the same issue but with color backgrounds!

Cheers,

Hi Niko

As gysbert suggested you can create your own theme and apply that in each text box you created. Just follow the instruction in the theme maker option in the layout tab.
