I'm not sure about 7, since we went from 5 to 8, but there should be two methods to do this.

1. Select the object you want to color. Then click and hold a color in the palette of your choice. The swatch will present a flyout that will allow you to chose certain preset tints. or...

2. Select your object as above. In the status bar (usually at the bottom of the screen) there should be a square that shows the color and outline that are applied to that object. Double click on the fill color, this should bring up the color dialog. From there you can change the tint to your specifications.

Another alternative is, holding down the control key and clicking on a color palette will also tint the object with the selected color.
