Any way to make map objects (graphs) transparent?



Is there any way, now or in future, to provide graphs in the map views that have transparency (preferably an adjustable alpha value) so that the background image shows through?

All the graphs that have x/y axis labels seem to add an excessive amount of white space around them, blocking out details in the bkgd image.

Thanks, Tim

Sorry, the PNG files are served directly from the PRTG web server and there is no way to make the background transparent.

PNG supports transparency, couldn't the graphs be rendered with an alpha channel instead of a solid white background? (clearly can't now, but would be good to add it). Thanks, Tim
