Thank you Joe! Hopefully others will click both LIKE and THIS HELPED ME to get you more visibility! Don
Thank-you for the excellent videos. We have been applying these techniques for a while now, but this is the best instruction we've come across for someone new to the concepts. Thank-you.
We would like to suggest one additional tip for those stuck on older versions like us (10.5) where sheet transparency is not an option.
The described techniques work well well if the background sheet/dashboard is a single colour, but what if the background sheet/dashboard is multi-coloured or has lines, borders, or banding?
However, if you set the outer padding on the floating object to a really high number so that you can’t actually see the sheet’s contents it provides the necessary transparency, but it still functions to pop my filter/sheet off the dashboard as it should even though the entire sheet is hidden by the excessive padding:
increase the outer padding increases the transparent area:
Keep increasing the outer padding until the transparent area hides the sheet completely:
Even though not visible, still functions as a pop out sheet and is transparent:
Thanks, my epidemiologist friend! Cool treatment. Right now when my pop out sheet (or part of it) has to be visible (even on a solid background) I format the contents to "appear" invisible. (No lines. Any visible text or marks colored the same as the background, etc.) But the padding approach eliminates that formatting. I'll have to give that a try!
