Changing the Opacity/Transparency of an Object

The opacity property controls the opacity/transparency of an object. The lower the value, the more transparent the object is.

100% opacity = fully visible

100% transparency = fully invisible

Take a look at the example below.

To Adjust the Opacity of an Object

1. Select the desired object on the canvas, then you can change the opacity on the right-side panel.

2. There are 3 methods you can use to adjust the opacity:

(1) Use your mouse to click and drag the slider to adjust the opacity.

By default, the opacity is set to 100%, which means the object is completely opaque. In the example below, you’ll see the opacity of the object

change from 100% to 0% (completely transparent).

(2) Hover your mouse over the % opacity value and a double-headed arrow will display.

Hold the left mouse button and drag to the left or right.

In the example below, the opacity is set to 42%. 

(3) Click into the % opacity value and change the number to the desired opacity.

In the example below, the opacity is set to 60%.
