Set up smart views to both color and set transparency of components

To color elements and make them transparent at the same time, follow these steps:
  1. Add the elements which you want to show when activating the smart view
  2. Use the 'Set colored' action first for the elements which you want to color
  3. Use the 'Set transparent' action on the same elements

Reversing these actions will result in only changing the component’s color.
