Description

tested with

http://www.igeo.pt/gdr/Downloads/ProdutosCLC/CLC06_PT.zip

it is also not very intuitive to have to go pick the transparency slider inside the "symbol" dialog. It would be better to have among the other options in the symbology tab, as it happens for the single symbol case.

Your sample data doesn't seem to be there any more.

I tried with different data and it works with Trunk.

Please give it a try!

The server is down, but the data doesn't matter. Pick a polygon vector, with the new engine make a categorized symbology.

You DON'T have a slider to set the the overall transparency for all the categories at one time, you can JUST enter each category and set the transparency one by one.

Some thing for graduated symbology.

#3 Updated by Giovanni Manghi almost 9 years ago

bottom line, you can just set transparency for single classes but not for all classes at one time (like in old symbology). If you consider that in new symbology you cannot choose more that one class at one time (like in old symbology) than this turn to be a real problem, especially if you have more than a few classes.

subscribing to the issue, I'm missing the slider too

#6 Updated by Martin Dobias over 8 years ago

It should be possible to set the transparency for the source symbol - the same transparency should be applied for each class when you (re)classify. Isn't that sufficient?

The problem with a "global" transparency setting is that as of now various categories might have various transparency levels assigned. Global transparency setting would then override that with new value for all symbols.

Oh yes, I see it now. And you have to hit "classify" again too, which changes the colors if youre using random color range.

About global transparency, can't you just concatenate transparencies ?
50% of transparency on the symbol * 50% of transparency globally would get to 75% transparency...

I think that this would be a good solution.

Martin, we also miss the possibility to select multiple symbology classes at the same time like in the old symbology (and then give the same symbology to the selected classes). There is already a ticket open about this issue?
