Transparency and/or Underneath Setting for Chart Drawing

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

Using a standard trend line drawing as an example, drawn on a chart in MultiCharts, currently you can only set colour, style and weight.
There should also be a 'Transparency' and/or 'Underneath' setting for line (or any drawn objects/lines/Fib Tools etc) in Multicharts.
Lines currently are solid and are on top of the chart so they cover whatever is underneath. This is especially problematic if you make the width of a line at the widest possible setting for you cannot see anything underneath it
So not only would a transparency setting help with better visuals and drawing composition, it would aid in better drawing tools over all to be able to move a trend line underneath the price action, and/or to be able to make it transparent as a percentage of opacity.
Attached is an example (overdone, yes, to show point) but you can see the issue.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Draw a trend line on a chart, set the line to the widest possible setting, and put it over the chart. You cannot see what is underneath.
