Color Picker

Just now starting to use the HTML editor.

I can't figure out how to define a transparency level within the color picker. It gives Hexidecimal values, but no RGB values and no transparency slider. I am probably missing something.

Thanks,
Galen

Galen, do you mean the colorbox within the Editor (not the new stand-alone app)?
If so, you should see going down the left side of the panel, under the selected color :
R G B and H S L <<<that's the rgb values
For your HTML/CSS, you would specify a color with transparency like this, (here's dark purple with 25% transparency):
color: rgba(64, 0, 128, 0.75);

Thank you Paintbrush,

I do see the RGB values, I just thought I would also see a transparency slider that would automatically add the transparency value after I moved the slider.

How do I force it to add RGB values rather than the hex values? (Instead of me typing the values in)

Thank you for the help.

I don't think that's an option, you just have to type it yourself. :D
