I'm using Ps 24.1.0, on a MBP, OS v. 12.6.2

I want a transparent green fill with a 100% opaque black stroke.

The appearance panel doesn't allow these modifications separately.

Thanks in advance!

Stroke as in Shape Stroke or Layer Style Stroke? 

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?

It might be necessary to use a work-around.

Normally, in the Layers panel in Photoshop, you should be able to set the Fill opacity on its own, as shown below. Are you doing it a different way?

Also, because this question was posted in the Photoshop forum…

…there is no Appearance panel in Photoshop, are you working in Adobe Illustrator, which does have an Appearance panel?
