Hello!
Faced with difficulties in version 2021, I ask the community for help.
I can not export PNG with transparent background as I did before. I have 20 artboards in one file and some I adjust to sizes through this export, but now the result is not the same (see photo).
What should I do to get transparency back ???11.png22.png

This took me a minute to figure out too! With the Artboard layer selected (not the object layer), you can go to properties and change background color to transparent.

Your Canvas is transparent, but your Artboard may not be. I see you pointed to the transparent setting, but in that panel it says Canvas. Select the Artboard in the Layers panel. Then make sure the Artboard backgound color is set to Transparent.

Resetting settings does not help !!!
The artboard is still "white" even if you set transparency.

I'm having the same problem on every work computer of the lab that has photoshop 2021 installed! We've been having to completely avoid using artboards for months! Transparency doesn't export on artboards!
