Transparent Field Help

I have a grey background and a grey 3d field.  I could do this in ACT 2000 so I assume I can here (v2009). I want to make

the field transparent and then take a text box with font color the one lighter grey and layer it behind the grey 3d field so it can be seen but the field is top.   I have hit the transparent button and have seen nothing transparent- what am I missing???

Re: Transparent Field Help

in New ACT, transparent fields are not really transparent, but take on the color of the background.  Nothing shows through them, just the same color.  This was changed in 2005 and has often been listed as a feature request.  Sorry.
