Transparency slider in Illustrator Web not working

When selecting a gradient fill for an element in the Web version of Illustrator, the annoying context bar insists that you may want to affect transparency. Clicking on the transparency button pops up a slider that supposedly should affect transparency.


Though you can drag the thumb, it doesn't stay where you drag it and it doesn't change transparency. 

It does, however, change the value of the opacity slider. But only sometimes.

It starts at 50% which is written as 100% -- error

dragging to the right forces the thumb back to 50%

dragging to the left changes the value but the thumb bounces back.

the cutesy bouncinhg value nox indicates when you have scrolled too far but is annoying.

the values change--nothing happens, no way to go back to fill.


This needs to be entirely handled on the right sidebar. That's where you should be able to access the settings, not the stupid context bar that constantly gets in the way.


The update UI for the web is a step in the right direction, keep it up. Thanks for your support.
