The Color panel.... however....
I don't want it to be opaque, so I can't use the opacity slider.
That makes no sense. If you don't want it to be opaque you MUST use the opacity slider on the Transparency panel.
Me thinks I used the wrong word. Basically, I didnt want any transparency, therefore, the opacity slider is out of question.
And .... I just figured out the problem. I didnt have the options displayed for the color panel. I knew this had to be here somewhere! Thanks.
