ArchiCAD 18 No Transparency in Sketch Rendering

Did transparency in the Sketch rendering engine go away in AC 18?

Can't seem to find a way to achieve transparency anymore.
Open my AC 17 file in 18 and saved renders no longer have transparency while still transparent in AC 17.

3d window setting 'Transparency in Shading' toggled on.
Is there a new setting somewhere I am missing.

Thanks

I checked this and I experienced the same thing. There is transparency in Sketch Rendering in AC17 but no transparency in AC18.
I don't see any new setting that would influence that, so I consider this a bug and will report it to Graphisoft.

Thank you very much.
I think I recall the same issue a few versions back...
