    ​Dear All,

    I am creating some new layouts however I am finding that when the layer has translucency applied then it does not produce the exactly the same colours when I print as PDF - for example the colours when changed to 50% translucency looks fine when on the Layout Window but when I have created the PDF, the legend of the PDF changes colour? Therefore surely the translucency that you apply should also apply to the Legend colours when the PDF is created?

    Thanks

    Richard

    Hi Richard

    I tried creating a layout in MapInfo Pro v2019 where my layer had a translucency of 50%.
    The translucency was reflected in the legend in the layout and I also think it is nicely reflected in the PDF created.
    I  have attached the resulting PDF

    Are you not seeing the same or do you think the colors aren't aligned between the map and legend?

    Thanks

    Hi Peter - many thanks for your reply. I think I might have resolved this issue now as for some reason it might have just been because I had one layer over the top of another but I have used the set target as to remove the section I didn't need - but thanks for your reply.
