How do I make the legend box transparent?
I am in the layout view of ArcGIS - ArcMap 9.3. The legend box is coloured with a grey background at the moment but I would like to make it transparent so part of the map can be seen below it. Is there a way of doing this?
Mapping Center Answer:
That cannot be done as stated. Graphic elements in the layout do not support transparency. The way to achieve the effect you want is to create a new polygon feature class and add it to your map--make its symbol whatever color and level of transparency you want--then use the Rectangle tool on the Advanced Editing toolbar to draw a rectangle around your legend.
