Audio Event Transparency

I’m seriously lost without this functionfor slicing and editing. Is there anyway to change a setting in cubase program file somewhere to make this work properly? This 6.0.1 update only teases… why make a complicated feature where it only shows transaprency when editing??? why not just allow another slider in the menu to take out the background permanently?

What am i going to do? Any suggestions?
