Grey out PDFs

Benjamin Weill


I'd love to be able to "grey out" PDF files - and other image files - within my documents. I get set drawings and other things that I want to put into my light plots files, but I don't always want them to be so prominent. I'd love to be able to gray the class with the PDFS on them, but they just turn into squares with an X through it. As it is, if I want to "grey" the PDFS, I have to draw a white fills box over them and then play with the transparency. It's a work-around, but it's pretty clumsy. I wish there were a way to make this a native thing.

Yes, you can change the transparency of a PDF in the attributes palette.

Even putting the PDF on a layer and setting that to grey gives a box with an X through it so that is not a workaround either.

It would be nice if it would be possible to set PDFs/images to grey.
