How do you plot transparency in ProgeCAD 2013?

The layer appears transparent in model and layout space but reverts to opaque when plotted to PDF.

Any ideas?

I can create solid shaded area on a drawing and then get a view with transparency of sorts (by changine property to % transparency vs "by layer") but there are diagonal lines added into the shaded area that are visible.  I can send a screen photo.  When I plot to PDF, I get a solid area. This is a big problem for me because I created conceptual plans with shading in AutoCAD at my prior job and now cannot modify them or plot them with ProgeCAD.  Is there a fix?

Dear progeCAD Customer,

in progeCAD 2013 Professional, you will be able to assign a transparency value to the desired layer.
It will revert to opaque when printed to PDF, as notified.

It was forwarded to the Development Team, they will further investigate it to look for an available solution.

Right now, I am not able to state when this will be present, in a future progeCAD release. It was not scheduled yet.

Thank you for your interest in the progeCAD software.

Best regards
