> I need to prepare a figure in which, say, two round areas with different patterns overlapped partially in xfig. I expect these two different patterns could appear in the intersected area at the same time instead of that one pattern conceal the other completely. I tried to adjust the depth of each figure, but these two patterns just appear alternatively. Does anybody know how to make these two figures transparent to each other so that these two patterns can be seen in the intersected area at the same time?

I don't think the idiology of xfig or PostScrip fits what you are trying
to do.  (Non-transparent ink is layered on top of a page.)  You may want
to convert your diagrams into a raster format, open them with GIMP (or a
similar) editor and then overlay them (look at the opacity factor).
