Issue with changing the alpha of a TMP_Text element

So I'm trying to assign a color value to a TMP_Text element, but for some reason, the alpha isn't being assigned [the other aspects are: r, g, and b]. Does anyone know how I can copy the alpha value over as well?

I did some debugging, and apparently, the alpha value is changing but it isn't being reflected in the actual scene/game.

This is Unity version 2021.3.12f1


This is the 2D forum, it doesn't relate to UI or anything related to that.

I'll move your post to the UI forum.

Can anyone help with this?

Can you describe what you're trying to achieve? Or provide screenshots of the look you're after?

I know TMP pretty well... but your heavily cropped screenshots of the Editor are baffling.
