Add transparency in Visio 2010, finally


If your normal Right-click > Format > Fill… doesn’t work to add transparency to a Visio object in 2010, try settingimage the same percentage for both Fill and Line.  In my quick testing, it didn’t work with some objects.  I’ve been looking for this functionality for a bit and finally found a reference to the workaround here.

    MIKE ! Thank you !

    Your tip worked for me The shape transparency issue in Visio 2010 has been driving me crazy for months. There are a lot of tips on the web about this, but most seem oddly irrelevant to the real problem.

    Thanks again.

    To make a picture transparent in Visio 2010 use the following steps:
    Format > Brightness > (at the bottom) – Picture Correctness Options > Image Control Tab > under Effects choose your Transparency.
