If the fill is a gradient, you must set the transparency separately for each of the gradient stops. (A stop is a color in the gradient.)
Set the Gradient Stops drop-down list to Stop 1, adjust the transparency, set it to Stop 2, adjust the transparency, and so on.
Chapter 9 explains gradients in more detail.
