I guess someone at Autodesk thought it was a good idea at the time
It's a feature, less code being loaded up at startup, and a cleaner dialog with out the extra slider in there. : (
A work around would be theme and style in 2011 then save that connection/layer to a .layer file and drag/drop into 2012 project.
I'll give that one a try
Now I need to make sure of what i'm talking about. side by side 2011 & 2012 where both windows should produce the same result, multi themed layer all equal transparency. The slider I am talking about is in the 2011 within the red lines. Where is the equivalent in 2012 is my question. I may be doing something wrong and would appreciate confirmation.
Another item to check if someone can. when setting the color and transparency, after you have set one color and the transparency you want, then change the color, tab, & apply does the transparency stay set on the map or go back to 255 with the new color? I have to re-eneter the transparency if I change the color so the transparency shows properly. Another problem to be solved?
No you are correct - if you change the colour (after having set a new transparency value), the new colour transparency reverts back to 255.....GGGRRRRRRR...!!!!!!!!
Wonderful. Another PIA. My reseller has opened a case with AD on this to find out if it is a design change or a defect. I vote for defect. I will add this problem to fray. Anyone else that can should follow along and send a request for return of the 2011 method.
