Color transparency missing option?

Recommended Posts

I know I can select an object and  choose "Fill "and then the "Color" tab and change transparency like so:

Here I can set the value for flat transparency though I have to guess cause there is no way to set the EXACT value.
This is a problem if I'd like several objects to have the exact same transparency value.

Maybe, for the sake of consistency, this opacity should be moved all together away from the color tool "Fill" tab to the opacity tool?

Adding the option "Flat"

And then adding the new tab "Flat" to the opacity panel like it is with the gradient tab but with the option to set exact values only for flat opacity?

Is there some reason you can't use the Color Studio panel for this? Just like in the other Affinity apps, the Opacity slider in that studio has a field next to it where you can enter the % directly.

Well, yes. I'm thinking it's because I'm overwhelmed by the number of opacity panels and just overlooked the fact that this panel, of course, is the obvious choice.
Even more, the exact value I am able to set in this panel, is reflected in the panel I was talking about. It's just that there, I can't see or set the exact value.

So four different ways to set opacity...
One as a gradient, one on layer level and two on object level, where on has a slider and percentage and the other has not.

And the Color Studio panel, where you actually can set opacity with slider or percent and the little sibling, where this value is reflected but where you only have the slider and no way to set the value in percent..

Well, R C-R..
Once again you helped me out with a somewhat obvious solution. But I still think that the opacity slider in the context menu should have the same way of setting opacity as in the Color Studio panel. After all, they are siblings :)

Thanx again.
