Hi Martin,

Something like this is going to be considered in the category of Set
Object Properties.

There are two commands:

setFillTransparency(transparency, [name]) and
setLineTransparency(transparency, [name])

I presume that transparency as a variable is a decimal (0.9 = 90%). You
only need to specify a name if it's not the selected object you're
operating on.

In the main window, when you set Fill transparency, you are also setting
the transparency of the content, text if a text frame, image if an image
frame, so presumably this works that way.
