All colors appear transparent, black appears gray.

Asked by Quinn Painter on 2018-01-03

Every time I try to make a color that is bright red, blue, or simply black, the colors look faded! All my opacities are at 100%, using the RGB colors, the "A" slider is all the way to the right at 255. I can't think of anything else to do. This just started happening! I can attach a screenshot.

Wow! Never mind. Immediately realized that even though all my shapes had 100% opacity, the layer did not. I'll leave this up here in case anyone else makes this mistake...

Yep, common issue. Here's a guide what else to check for, for anyone who finds this:
