Default Color and Transparency in Word Table shading

Hello,

I have a Visio drawing which sets a color (RGB) and a transparency so object beneath are somewhat visible. PowerPoint uses the same command. I need to set the color for table cell in Word (or Excel) for the same color and transparency. Word and Excel only use RGB values. Does anyone know how to translate the Visio/PowerPoint color/transparency so they are the same in Word/Excel.

Word does allow you to apply transparency to shapes but not to table cells or paragraph shading.

As you noted in the other thread, the eyedropper is a useful tool. You already have that in Powerpoint so you don't need to screen capture and use the eyedropper in Paint if your colour source is Powerpoint. I note that this does remove the transparency in Powerpoint though so after you get the RGB value, you will want to undo the eyedropper's action.

With Visio, it looks like your current method is the best option.

UNLESS, you could use an eyedropper tool that worked on any part of the screen - see 25 best color picker apps for Windows 10 [2020 Guide]

Thanks Andrew

I also determined that this works only if the background is white. As an afterthought this makes sense.
