It is a long time since I made use of transparent map backgrounds, and on
trying just now I think it is no longer working (at least in 5.3.10, 5.3.9
and maybe earlier versions I get white backgrounds instead).
Or perhaps I am making a silly mistake?
I thought the problem might be the same as the bug in 5.3.5 when this
feature was first introduced
but it seems I get opaque white backgrounds with either syntax.
within an explicitly defined layout;
colour map-bg transparent
or as part of the export map command;
export map -projection [elevation 270 deg] \
-layout LayoutMapBulmer_System \
-layout LayoutMapBulmer_SystemElev \
-layout-colour map-bg transparent \
You can test this by creating a pdf map with a transparent background and
inserting it into another map with 'map-image'.
Does anyone else find that transparent backgrounds are not working?
