I cannot reproduce this on Windows.

On OSX opacity is set to 100% by default.
I can't reproduce this on 1.5.1svn r20445

BTW, Alma, what version of Scribus are you using ?

I tried with both 1.5.0 (built May 19th 2015 in the scribus ppa on launchpad) and 1.5.1.svn (built Oct 3rd, scribus ppa) on Kubuntu 15.04 with backports enabled. In both cases the problem persists as described above. Anything I could do for triaging?
How do I get version numbers with built packages?

re: Version Numbers
Build scribus from source with CMake flag: -DWANT_SVNVERSION=1
and then check: Scribus > Preferences for build #

It would be nice to have this flag enabled on launchpad...

You're using the Scribus Friends PPA ?
I've sent a message to mapreri to see if he could add that CMake flag to the 1.5.1svn build

Still no luck with the latest daily build. There is a change, though in that in the preview it sometimes works (the mix of colors is shown), and that after clicking o.k., sometimes at least the last color set to 100% is retained (also not always).

@mapreri Sorry to disturb, if you have a quick moment can you test this ?

Some more testing done:
I inserted an image, pressed ctrl-e, added triplex and played around. My findings:
if you change all values, only the lowest value is retained, the other to are set to 0%.
If you change the upper two, only the lower of the two is set, the upper one forgotten.
If I change only the upmost value, then it sticks.

(I hope I explained that in a intellegible way, English is not my first language... ;-)

I think you explained yourself pretty well, but I'm unable to reproduce it. I fiddled with the options of all 3 Duotone/Tritone/Quadtone and have not noticed anything weird.

BTW: adding -DWANT_SVNVERSION=1 to the build is not feasible in the current infrastructure (but maybe I'll able to hack something in the future), but in the meantime the svn version used can be found on the version of the package. out of the long string like 1.5.2svn~r21089~20160318~ppa41~ubuntu16.04.1 the svn commit number is r21089. you can find such a string with `dpkg -l scribus-trunk`
