Creo 2.0 Highlighting obscures geometry


Is there a way to make pre-highlight semi-transparent?  When pre-highlight activates, it is a solid color, obscuring features below.

  1. The pre-highlight is semi-transparent if transparency is turned on in the Model Display
  2. There are a few Tech Support calls concerning allowing for using Wildfire type pre-Highlighting and there is an open SPR for this
    • Reported to R&D as SPR 2098830
    • Previously closed as “No Plans to Implement“, because pre-highlighted model is transparent by default
    • Reopened as transparency often needs to be switched off to improve graphical performance

Workaround: Set All items except Surface, Feature, Part and Component as custom My Filter
