Re: transparency as default

I found the relevant dialogue by trial

ii. I could not find out how to make it
the default for new objects.  Looking in
preferences, I expected to find 'object
defaults' next to 'diagram defaults', but
it was not there.  So I had to change each
object separately.

How can I (temporarily) make this the default?

For each object type, you can double-click the icon in the toolbox to bring
up the defaults dialog for that.  Of course, if you want transparent
background for different kinds of objects, you have to set that for each
kind.  And it's not temporary, but can be set back the same way.
