again, it has to be done as

lcaocartoon color translucent red

prior to defining the lcaocartoons. This way all are expressed the same way. It's done this way because it's a pain to access each one individually after the fact, and even if it were within the command that creates it, it would be "after the fact" -- if that makes any command. Supposed to be reasonable.

Thanks Bob. Nice to know this feature, I can see it being handy. Are lcaocartoons displayed only as opaque, the command “color lcaocartoon translucent red;” still appears as opaque.
