In addition to offering adjustable transparency, Drawings also provides other editing features such as size, color settings, shadows and highlights. The transparency function is different for shapes and images. In addition, it is buried in such a way as to make access and its use difficult.
That's why we will help you. Here, you'll learn how to edit the transparency of images and shapes in Google Drawings (and in Google Docs).

Change the transparency of shapes in Google Drawings
The above method to change the opacity does not work for shapes. Here are the steps to adjust the transparency of shapes in Google Drawings.
1. Make the border transparent
First, add your shape to the drawing. The shapes usually have a border around them. You must start by making the border transparent. You can also skip this step if you want the border to remain intact.
To make the border transparent, click on the shape and then on the color icon of the border (which looks like a pencil) in the toolbar at the top. Tap the Transparent option to make it completely transparent.
You will notice that the border disappears from the shape.
2. Adjust the transparency of the shape
Then, to adjust the transparency of the actual shape, click the fill color icon (which looks like a paint bucket) present in the top bar next to the border color icon.
