Same class, different opacity for line and filling

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

Does any one know if there is a way to give different opacity to filling and to a line in a same class?

 

Or the only way is to create a class for the filling and one for the lines to regulate each one separately?

 

Its just that sometimes I would like to have the lines at 100% opacity, but the filling at 50% for example. Then I see that the lines get this 50% opacity too and would like to keep them at a 100%.

 

Thanks a lot.

You can do this in Vectorworks 2017 either by class or individually by object, but not in previous versions of Vectorworks:

Thanks VW.  This is really useful and I have been wanting it for years.

 

What was it they said at the Summit?  Something like a lot of user requests are more like this one, and less for wild new features.  This fits the bill.

You can assign a gradient instead of a color.

In the gradient settings you can set both colors the same color + use a transparency.

This way you can apply different transparency settings for filling and line,

in pre VW 2017 versions.
