I notice in the inspector that objects from layers that had transparency imported from other cad programs
have the transparency listed on the inspector.
My question, is how do I plot so these objects are transparent in Nanocad.

I looked in the HELP file for Nanocad 5, and on the 'net but can not find a way to do it.

Hello Mark,

now nanoCAD can't plot with transparency. We are working on this problem, hope, it will be possible in the future version.

Hi there,

I dont know if this question has been answered in another thread but if so then great!

I recently installed NanoCad and ran into a similar issue. I had hatched objects that were displaying as transparent in my view port and model space but then when plotting or printing to PDF they were not transparent.
I discovered that if I changed the display order for the hatching to "send to back" then this resolved the issue and I was able to plot with colour transparencies without issue.

Hope that helps, let me know if you need more guidance or info on the above.

I try to plot with transparency with the free version nanoCad 5, it don't work.
I try to "send to back", it don't work.
I can't export to jpg nor png and plotting with pdf creator not working for transparency.

I will try with another program CAD viewer like.

[EDIT] : Finally I use Custom color → True color → HSL → Luminance → 90
