Is there a way to control the opacity (transparancy) for colors I store in a libraries?

 

That is, the setting is supposed to follow the color when used in other files.

You could make it a Graphic Style and add the object with the Graphic Style to the library.

Alt drag the object to a document.

Delete the object and apply the graphic style whenever you want.

No, opacity settings cannot be stored in swatches.

You could apply the transparent color to an object and add the object to a library.

Alt-drag the object to another document and pick up the color with the eyedropper.

Then I won't be able to resue the color in full, as I have to eye drop for every object that uses the color. Unless there is another way to solve that?
