Transparency

It's easy to make a text or picture box transparent: just give it a background color of None in the Modify dialog box (double-click on the box with the Item tool, or select it with the Item tool or Content tool and press Command-M). If you want transparency around a picture (like a silhouette of the image), you have to use a clipping path, which I discuss in Chapter 10, Fine Tuning Images.

Unfortunately, XPress still offers no way to make the contents of a box or the box itself semi-transparent so that it blends into the page or other objects.
