Include transparency when importing symbology

Idea created by lbarbato on Nov 1, 2013
    I tried searching for this before posting since I thought others have wanted to do this.  Sorry if this is a repeat.

    I would like the Import Symbology function to automatically import the transparency setting. 
    Seems I'm always having to go back to the original layer > look up the percent transparency > go to the properties of the current layer > then set the transparency.
