Just create a brush that is completely transparent, convert it into a BGPic, and then display this BGPic.

Can you pls explain a bit more how to achieve this effect with Designer?

On a single page project, I 'd like to open this svg on a borderless window (project properties->Display->Window & Borderless enabled) with its default transparency.

On Hollywood, if I do the following script, it works:

Code: Select all

@BGPIC 1, "map.svg", {LoadAlpha = True}
@DISPLAY {Borderless = True, DragRegion = {{X = 0, Y = 0, Width = 528, Height = 535}}}
EscapeQuit(True)
Repeat
	WaitEvent
Forever
But on Designer if create a new page (with Picture type selected) and on Page Manager I select transparency, background is always enabled (backfill settings single color or gradient) which basically overrides the transparency effect.

I also tried adding this as background picture on the picture type manager while adding the map.svg as a layer on the script (Object manager) but it didn't work either.

I also worked both above cases as Pattern type page with the same result. I have also selected Projects Properties->Backfill none, just n case and SVG plugin is ticked on the required list.

Using latest Hollywood (9) and Designer (5) under MorphOS 3.15.

I'm afraid Designer doesn't support transparent pages so it's not really possible to do this in Designer.
