Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Not a bug but a usability issue.

Describe the solution you'd like
Allow control of text size and background opacity. Especially when typing is engaged or when not. Just like the rest of the UI.

Describe alternatives you've considered
Vanilla UI would be the alternative presently besides other UI packs.

Found that the chat is visible, but I can't change the opacity of the background.

You can control the text size. Hit Enter to make the window visible, then move your mouse to the top left of the window to find the tab/titles. Right-click, and you can choose font size from there, like in the default interface.

Background though, that's not a current option. But I do plan to add it. It's not a problem for me personally, nor for the graphical designer of the UI Blakmane, but I do realize that not everybody has our monitors, eyesight, light environment and whatnot, and remember clearly how I needed to have black background behind my chat frames back in WotLK to be able to function as a pro raider. So I'm not ignorant of the problem here, just slow and without much time to spare to develop features! Sorry!

Anyway, I'm working on an update to the config menu, I'll be placing everything in a more understandable window instead of this more and more confusing menu system. And I'm adding in some options at the same time. A custom chat backdrop system is part of that. So it's coming!

I'll rename this issue and leave it open until it is solved.
