Transparent text

  • Is it possible to put some transparent text over a page ?

  • Blend mode has been introduced in version 0.1.2 (currently committed on SVN repo but still to be released), though transparency as described by chapter 7, PDF Reference 1.7, has not been organically implemented yet.


  • Thanks Stefano, blend mode was exactly what I was looking for

  • Revision 86 adds explicit text transparency support (see WatermarkSample).

  • Thanks again Stefano. (To be honest, this was what I was really looking for, although I could achieve a similar effect with blend mode)
