Hi

I am designing a cheque application and wish to retain the cheque background behind the signature, I have a transparent .png image of the signature and if I put this into Word it is transparent, I use a coloured background to check this. When the same .png is used in Design it has a white box behind it. I tried the transparent and duotone settings but no difference.

Any idea how I get a transparent signature?

Cheers
Dave

Thanks, great advice

I used paint.net, got the dll from here https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/15317-low-color-filetype-bmp-gif-png-tiff-20091204/

Saved the file as a low colour bitmap (1 bit) and then selected duotone in design with Black as the colour

Perfect Result Cheque looks great!
