The option is present in previous versions but has disappeared in this one.
Hello Javier, *,
are you sure, that this option was present in former versions of LO's 5.1 branch? I have to go back to
OS: Debian Testing AMD64
LO: Version: 126.96.36.199
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8)
which was the last version of LO with this option. With
LO: Version: 188.8.131.52
Build ID: 5e3e00a007d9b3b6efb6797a8b8e57b51ab1f737
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Linux 4.5; UI Render: default;
Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8)
(and later) it was obviously removed, so confirmed somehow ... ;)
By design. Not a Bug.
These were removed from the Tools -> Options -> View dialog and are accessible from Expert Configruation, i.e. Tools -> Options -> Advanced: Expert Configuration and search for an set:
TransparentSelection -- true|false (true default)
TransparentSelectionPercent -- 10-90 (75 default)
From the Help (which needs to be adjusted to move to Expert Configuration coverage bug 80430).
View -> Selection -> Transparency
If enabled, the text selection in Writer and the cell selection in Calc will be shown using a transparent color. If not enabled, the selection will be shown by inverted colors.
Select the transparency level for transparent selections. The default value is 75%. You can select values from 10% to 90%.
Thanks for your reply.
No, I was referring to a 5.0 version. I was told in the LO Forum this must be a bug. But anyway, your instructions were helpful and I finally managed to set the transparency.
