Re: [RFC] type-based transparency

Hi all,

I want to change the color system in PcbNew so that transparency is
tied to object type rather than board layer.  Color would still be set
by layer, but transparency would be settable for things like tracks,
component pads, zones, etc.

Hi Jon-

I like the idea. I can see that working well for tracks/zones/vias/footprints/etc.

I would still like to keep the option (maybe as a multiplicative setting) of changing a layer transparency, at least for user layers. I wouldn't want my GDT marks to automatically have the same transparency as lines in copper layers, for instance.
