1.17 FAQ-129 Why does transparent color setting fail to work in my contour plot?

Last Update: 7/5/2018


You can set a level’s color fill to None in your contour plot to make it display as transparent. By doing this, you can see through the region that corresponds to that level. However, sometimes you do not see the effect on your graph. In this case, please check whether the Graphic Image Caching setting of the graph layer has been set to None. If not, the transparent effect cannot work properly.


To check or modify the Graphic Image Cache setting of a graph layer

  • Right-click on the layer icon and select Layer Properties from the short-cut menu. This opens the Plot Details dialog and allows you to modify the properties of this layer. Make the Size/Speed tab active. Check the selection in the Graphic Image Caching drop-down list in the Layer/Area group. To change the setting, select another option with this drop-down list and click the Apply button.
  • You can also access Display Caching from the right-click context menu of a graph layer.
