Can icon opacity be changed?



Is there a way to alter an icon’s opacity or a work around to give the same effect?

I want to overlay one icon, with another smaller icon - in this instance the PDF/Acrobat icon with an envelope however the Acrobat icon can be seen through the envelope.



Figured it out!

I took a screenshot of the envelope icon and then imported it as a symbol which I then overlaid on the other icon and grouped them together.



Hey @Danny_McGrath,

I’m glad to hear that you found a workaround that did the trick for you. :slight_smile:

We’ve been discussing a similar use case in the past, so I’ll add your vote and comments to the discussion. As always, we’re here to help if you need anything else, Danny!


Another way would be to place a borderless rectangle between the two icons. You can adjust the opacity of the rectangle for additional effect.
