After searching through these forums, seems that I'm not the only one who would like to have alpha transparency support in PSM Design... Any plans to add this support?

No immediate plans.

Part of the problem is that PostScript has no native support for alpha transparency. PSM 7 also uses PostScript as an intermediate format for PDF output.

Keeping this in mind, if you use a non-PostScript driver with PSM 7 the result should be pretty close to what you would expect. No guarantees, but if you don't need PDF output you could try a PCL driver if one is available for your printer.
