I'm using 1.9.0 due to difficulties installing 1.8 on Ubuntu 13.04.

I have a style that is a singleband pseudocolor, and I decided I could do with the same style, but 50% transparent. So I used the transparency tap to make that so, and saved the style.

Now if I try to assign the new style by clicking on Load Style then the layer looks transparent, as I'd hope. But in the transparency tab transparency is apparently set at 0%. If I click OK or Apply, then this 0% transparency is assigned to the raster.

The only way to ensure that the correct style is applied is to 'Load Style' with the transparent style, and then click Cancel. A somewhat counter intuitive work around (and not ideal, I tend to use the Multi QML plugin to assign styles to multiple layers, this fails with transparent styles, I assume for similar reasons).

Confirmed. This used to work on qgis 1.8 ?

The layer transparency style support was apparently removed (or stubbed) with commit 6b2af9a

Not sure why or if that commit is the reason for the issue, so I assigned Jürgen to the ticket.

  • Assignee deleted (Jürgen Fischer)

The layer transparency wasn't used anymore - I just removed all the getters/setters.
