    Yes you can.
    Simply go to the paper settings and move the opacity to 0

    Hi there,

    Can you give me a few more details on what you're trying to do there? If you want a transparent background, right click the background layer, go to 'Edit paper settings' and move the opacity dial to 0%. If you have done this, the background should then show a checker pattern to indicate it is transparent.

    If you want to use this image in other programs, export it as a format which supports transparency, such as PNG via File --> Export as Image. If you export it as another format which doesn't support transparency, such as jpg, then the background will not be transparent.

    How are you using the image? Are you saving it in another format? Does that format support transparency? For example, PNG supports it, but BMP does not.
