    Default group transparency issue

    Hey guys!

    !!make it at your own risk (save before at least)!!

    Create new document
    Create rectangular (actually any primitive)
    Make bitmap transparency on them
    Make a group
    Try to apply any type of transparency on group
    Xara crashed

    or maybe i am alone at this issue?

    This does not happen for me.

    Try close the program. Then right click on the program icon and select Run as Administrator. This will work or it will not work. Just try it one time.

    I use this method to add two different transparencies/fills to a shape.

    Never had any particular issue or crash.

    I know the answer to this, but how do you add two different transparencies to a shape?

    OK. If you group an object that has a transparency applied to it, you can then apply a second transparency.

    This also applies to contours, and blends. Once these are grouped, they are treated as a single object to which transparency can be applied.

    you can only group an object with itself once, but....

    you can group it again with a no-fill no-outline object and so repeat....
