I have written a MapBasic program which creates a custom layout workspace in MapInfo 17.03 - This all works fine until I added translucency via the "Alpha" settingWhilst the Alpha command is clearly in the workspace and selecting the properties of the layer states it is 50% translucent - it is still displaying at 100% solid - altering the translucency in MapInfo immediately activates it and subsequent a save retains the setting and displays correctly on re-opening - which looks almost identical to the original created workspace - any ideas how to get the layer to appear translucent
