Offer separate opacity settings for outline and fill of Snagit shapes

I was a Beta-Tester for Snagit-13, but I don't remember running into this.

I often create shape overlays to emphasize to coworkers various things. I outline the issue with a bold colored outline, and then use a colored fill to show other issues categories quickly.

I just discovered that trying to put a 25% Opacity on the FILL also puts a 25% Opacity on the Outline.  Arrrrgggghhh!!  Spasms!!  Horrible programming.

The Opacity setting should be separate for FILL and for OUTLINE - each should be able to have its own independent opacity setting!
