Background Hatch Color Properties?

Background Hatch Color Properties?

 

I'm possibly asking a bit much here.  When using a background color in a hatch pattern... is it possible to set transparancy and/or screening options when using an *.stb file?

 

If I were using a *.ctb file it would be obvious, but I'm doing contract work for a client and am using their *.stb file, and I don't have the option of adding another option to their *.stb file.

Since they are forcing you to use their STB, I would recommend you talk to them about what you wish to do before making any changes: "standards compliance" have a funny way of getting some people off a project if you know what I mean.

I think I'm just stuck with using their *.stb file "as is".  My work-around was to have two hatch layers... a solid hatch layer with one color and properties behind a pattern hatch layer with it's own color and set of properties.
