Diagram Filters: Control amount of fade ?
« on: September 14, 2018, 10:29:22 am »
I am playing around with diagram filters - both the rule based ones and the newer (?) toolbar based options (Ribbon: Layout > Filter).
There are options to 'fade' or 'gray scale' elements on the diagram based on the filter selection, and these effects are carried through to published diagrams (nice !)

However I'm finding the 'fading' and 'graying' to be too extreme, such that the filtered out elements have almost no contrast and so are effectively not readable.  I'm looking for an effect that makes the 'filtered in' elements 'pop' so that they are emphasised but that the rest of the diagram is still legible.

So - does anyone know if there is a way to control the degree of effect here? Alternatively any suggestions on good colour choices for elements so that they will remain legible when filtered out?
