With the new update, the transparent background is supposed to be with a checkered background. Am I doing something wrong? It still seems to be white and I don’t see any setting to change this.
I can also reproduce this issue.
Thank you for reaching out. I understand the confusion regarding the checkered transparent artboard backgrounds after the 5.1.0 update.
The default behavior hasn’t changed; artboards in newly created documents still appear with have NO fill by default, and thus, the canvas appears as white. To achieve a checkered, transparent background, you’ll need to:
- Select the artboard.
- Turn the fill option ON.
- Reduce the alpha value of the chosen fill color.
Artboard with no fill = appears white
Artboard with fill + transparency = transparent
Once you’ve done this, the artboard background will switch from white to a checkered pattern, indicating it is transparent.
Thank you Igor, I will give this a try.
