Setting transparency for CAD feature layers

Use the Effects toolbar or the Display tab in the Layer Properties dialog box to apply transparency settings to CAD group layers or feature layers.

To use the Effects toolbar:

  1. Right-click the main menu and click Effects.
  2. Click the Layer drop-down arrow and choose a CAD feature layer or group layer.
  3. Click the Adjust Transparency button Adjust Transparency.
  4. Drag the slider to adjust transparency, then release the button to end the command.

You can use the group layer transparency setting to override all child feature layers. Resetting the group transparency to zero returns control to the feature layer settings.
