Column Rule colour is inconsistent vs. Fill and Stroke
The colour applied to a Column Rule is darker than elsewhere applied, e.g., Fills and Strokes.
- New file.
- Draw a text frame (no text needed) and set the Columns to 2 and turn ON the Column Rule with default values. However, set the Colour to 10% Black.
- Set the Fill and the Stroke of the text frame to the very same 10% Black.
Notice that the Column Rule is darker than the Fill and Stroke. It shouldn't be.
Hope this helps.
P.S. See the attached screenshot - I'm using Magenta rather than Black. Same results.

I just tested this on the PreRelease build today ... and it seems fixed. Pretty sure! Can you verify that this got fixed already? Seems ok to me.
