Inconsistent alpha on toolbar/properties regions
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

Blender Version
Broken: 2.80 4d795cee493

Short description of error
The alpha component of the toolbar/properties region background is not consistently used.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Most editors have a toolbar and/or properties region available. While the related theme settings all have an alpha component available in the region background colour, not all of them are consistently working.

While It has been said that only the 3dview needs transparent regions, the vse and uv/image editors allow transparency and the node editors allow only toolbar transparency

While improving UI consistency is good, it's outside the scope of the bug tracker.

For various technical and design reasons, region overlap is only enabled for some things:
