Change background color

Look for:


There you have something like (showing default config):


Color is defined by the first 3 numbers in the rgba property, going from 0 to 255.

Each one is a color channel: red, green and blue.

The last number is the alpha channel, which specifies the transparency amount and it's controlled by hyper-transparent.

Whatever color you write using the rgb portion will be preserved while changing the alpha channel.

The plan is to add better support for color picking in the future :)
