Re: Ticket #4206 - Transparency display lost on multicolored object when reloading file

Did you try to save the file and reload it? When I set transparency somewhere around 70 on any part in the Goal Post file (I do not get a wire frame; note that high transparency >80 with flat lines might look like a wireframe), save the file and reload it, transparency is no longer displayed on any...

Re: Ticket #4206 - Transparency display lost on multicolored object when reloading file

I downloaded your file and played with the transparency of 2-1 Sleeve. The image attached is with transparency set at 33. It seems to be showing the lines of the part below as you would expect but no wireframe on that part or anywhere else. Same result on the 'stable' version I downloaded a while ag...

Re: Confused about Body

I'll keep out of the ongoing debate but thanks for taking the time to respond. I'm new to FreeCAD but I started learning 'technical drawing' in the mid 1970s when my teacher confidently told everyone that computers would take lots of jobs but they'd never do what a skilled draughtsman could do.
