Background Overlay



New Member
When I try to change the color of the background overlay, the menu only shows the transition duration option...
Background overlay button clicked.png
with no color or any other options available
then, if I click on Border from there, that option disappears entirely.
I have deactivated all other plugins and no change. Version 2.7.5 of Elementor.
I am admittedly new to this arena, but am wondering if I am alone in with this problem and how to resolve?
Any help would be much appreciated.

I found a solution. I changed my browser from Microsoft Edge to Google Chrome, and now all works as it should. I also had problems dragging widgets into columns and that is also now fixed.
I was doing more research to try to find the problem and someone suggested that IE has problems.
I hope this helps someone else, I am sure that other browsers may work too, someone suggested Firefox.
