Thank you very much, that was exactly what I was looking for. It takes  
a while to get a grip on how Squeak does things ;-)
So, although I had found the colour-picker I did not immediately  
understand how to actually change it. Re-reading your post again (and  
again) I finally discovered the secret being in 'sliding' the top bar  
with the word 'transparency' in it. I'm just repeating the obvious  
because someone else might stumble into the same mental trap as I did  

Thanks again & Regards,
