Changing the opacity of an element affects the transparency level of this element and all its children.

Learn more about opacity and other effects.

Opacity can also be changed for a color of a specific style property, like a background color or border color. This is useful if you want to apply transparency to a specific style property without affecting its children elements.

Setting hover effects

You can use the opacity property to create hover effects:

  1. Select hover from the states menu
  2. Set an opacity value in the Effects section of the Styles panel.
  3. Go back to the none state
  4. Add a transition to smooth out the effect
