How do I adjust transparency of choropleth map colors

Running into a new issue with a choropleth map. I've created many others in the past and haven't run into this problem.


The colors are not transparent, so the regions and countries never show up through the colors, regardless of zoom level.


I can't figure out what is different about this map vs. others. Any ideas why my colors might be lacking any transparency at all?


Thanks in advance.





Hello. Were you able to solve the transparency of colors?
I have the same problem.

Apparently, it is a problem with the Default theme in Power BI.  Microsoft is apparently aware of the problem and is supposedly escalating it. In the meantime, I circumvented it by applying the "Classic" theme and adjusting from there.
