"Retain object's transparency"

Probably having a total brain-fart here, but in custom material attributes in a display setting, it has a check box for “Retain Object’s Transparency” - Is this transparency the one set by the Layer’s color slider, or is there an interface I’m forgetting where you can set an object’s transparency?

Hello - it’s getting that from the object’s material transparency.


Ah, thx.

Are there any plans to give us the option to take that info from the layer’s transparency slider, or an actual “Object Transparency”?

I know for me, there are plenty of times where I’m not using materials, and since we now have the layer transparency, it would be useful to iterate that through the other display options…
