How to make the background of a matrix/ table transparent like other visuals

Hi,

 

Currently we have a few options to choose from under the Style pane in the formating options.

 

But is there a way to make the background completely transparent so that the matrix or table blends in well with my page background.

 

Thank you.

Ah, I see what you're saying.   I was able to remove that portion by going to the Formatting tab, and selecting Style > None.

 

Then you can go into the Grid formatting section to show/hide the gridlines as you see fit.

Look further down under style.  Matrices and tables have an entire section just for Backgrounds.  Turn that on, and set it to 100% transparency.

No thats just the background around the matrix and table. background.png

So I went through this and after setting Style to None you'll need to go to Field Formatting and click revert to default.  That will fix your issue.

Hi @Cmcmahan ,

 

So as you said, it's impossible to remove the background of the cells in the table, right?

 

Thanks.

Change the style to None and it will work

Hi @RogerSteinberg ,

 

Thanks for reply, I have changed the style to None, but I didn't find a place to change the transparency.

 

Is it possible to make transparency to 100%? could you please give a screenshot of this?

 

Thanks in advance

You cannot change the transparency of a matrix. You only have options to change the style. None will be the closest solution to what you want to achieve.

 

Hope this helps
