I've read various threads on how one can change the opacity values of stroke and fill individually by going to the Appearance panel. Unfortunately I cannot do that and I'mm stuck.

As you can see in the picture, when I'm selecting the yellow triangle and going in the Appearance panel, I get a fill and stroke option, but when I adjust them, nothing happens to my shape. This is a mixed object but even when I expand fill & stroke and ungroup the shape, I cannot adjust the fill opacity.

I want to adjust all three triangles' fill opacity without affecting the stroke. Please help.



You should expand the small triangle on the appearance panel and adjust as usual -

If it does not work - probably the problem it the way you created the shapes

  • Jeez! Had no idea this was here. Even adjusted the opacity on the very next line (which controlled the whole object). – clark Sep 9 '15 at 16:11
